What we're studying:
This year we are studying Physical Science; however, we just finished our unit on Simple Machines, which gave us great ideas for our project.

Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"Don't memorize, ANALYZE!"

Why we think we should win:
Warrior's Warriors believe that we should win due to the fact that we overcame many challenges, yet in the end we were able to put our heads together and create a machine that we believe is extremely worthy of this competition. As is usually the case with a large group of girls, there was the drama. However, we all became extremely close and learned A LOT about both Rube Goldberg and the art of simple machines through this project. This year was the year of "Girl Power", and our team worked so hard to complete what many called "a simple task". We loved making this machine and we hope you love it too!
