Simplicity - what won one team victory in our "Simple Machines" competition and described the loss of the other team.
That's right, the victors of our "Simple Machines Contest" are:
Michael Firer '09
Michael Everdell '09
Ben Kohan '09
Adam Schwartz '06
How did they win? Simply because they were simple in their idea (pun very much intended :) ).
The materials we used:
For those of you accustomed to looking at things from different perspectives...

The winning team's machine:
The Winning Machine!
The machine in action:
The severely complicated machine:

Anyways, the victors:
"Yes, we are going to win" (A pre-victory team picture. Adam apparently didn't want to be in this picture. :) )
So, what have we learned folks?
Thank you, and good day! :)
