Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
Whether you think you can or think you can't - you are right. ~Henry Ford

Why we think we should win:
We believe we should win because we took on this difficult challenge with only three people. We've held ourselves accountable even though we had to go to other clubs and math and reading intervention. This experience has bonded us as friends and brought us closer. This has prepared us for complex thinking and we've learned we can create anything from random objects.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Turning on an electronic, opening a backpack, or peeling an orange.

Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

Our machine represents a day in the life of a Wiltsey student. We included items such as a school bus to symbolize school, ping pong paddle to represent PE, scissors to represent art, guitar to represent music class, and a Wiltsey student made from plastic containers.
