Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
“Being beaten and being defeated are not the same; there will always be someone who can beat you no matter how hard you try, but you are not defeated until you quit trying.”

The tale of arby’s
This is the tale of arby’s and it starts off with two people who desperately need food. Breonna says hey, do you want to get food? Which Haylee says in response sure, where do you want to go? Arby’s breonna says. In both they agree with a nod. They ride their bikes from the high school to arby’s and on their way there something miraculously happens to which haylee gets a serious scrape... after her scrape, Breonna calls a few friends to help with their problem. In the event of her falling haylee dropped her curly fries. Her friends decide to build a machine because they are all germaphobes and did not want to touch haylees scrape. Josh decides in a split second on out two things of how they can keep the streets clean while they can clean haylee’s scrapes clean. Then the third machine puts the band aid on the scrapes without touching it , in which they put a band aid on a fly swatter so that they can put it on with enough momentum so the band aid can’t fly off. Then haylee’s scrapes won’t bleed anymore with the band aid.

Our Step List

1. Starts with marble added at the top.
2. Rolls down first spiral
3. Enters a loop
4. Loop into a funnel
5. Funnel into a pipe
6. Pipe to an inclined plane
7. Inclined plane to a funnel
8. Funnel to an inclined plane
9. Marble hits dominoes
10. Domino hits mouse trap
11. Mouse trap pulls string
12. String attached weight through pulleys
13. Weight falls pulling string and elevator up
14. Elevator stops, causing a pre-placed marble to travel down an inclined plane
15. Marble stops creating a force which loosens an inclined plane.
16. Inclined plane connected to a pulley
17. Weight connected to the pulley falls
18. Falling weight lifts the inclined plane
19. Marble rolls down inclined plane into a series of inclined planes
20. At the end of the series of inclined planes, marble lands into a bucket
21. Bucket attached to a lever and fulcrum
22. Weight of marble in the bucket causes one side of the lever to go down.
23. Lever goes up causing the release of a Lego bike
24. Lego bike travels down a ramp
25. Lego bike hits a cardboard tube and dominoes
26. Falling dominoes and tube causes weight to fall
27. Weight drops pulling a string connected to a wedge at the top of the second tower
28. Wedge gets pulled out releasing a marble
29. Marble travels down spiral
30. Marble changes direction into an inclined plane
31. Marble travels into a bi-directional gate forcing it to either side of the machine
32. Marble travels from gate to a series of inclined planes
33. Marble goes from inclined planes to a curve to be directed to a series of dominoes
34. Falling dominoes set off a mousetrap
35. Mouse trap pulls string connected to a wedge
36. Wedge releases a marble at the top of tower 3
37. Marble rolls down a series of inclined planes
38. At the end of the inclined planes, marble is directed to a ramp
39. Marble rolls down ramp to set off rat trap
40. A flyswatter is connected to the rat trap. A band aid is on the flyswatter. When the rat trap is activated, flyswatter swings and applies the band aid to cut on a picture of an arm
