The Rube Goldberg that Leo and I made had a lot of effort put in it. We had to look at videos of other people doing it but did not take their ideas. We just looked for stuff that could go together. Leo and I prepared for this since the beginning of the year and already had some thoughts in mind of what we were going to do. We knew that we had to use a lot of simple machines and have at least eight steps. We exceeded what we were supposed to do and had eighteen steps with a lot of simple machines. The simple machines included pulleys, inclined planes, and wedges. We were confident and excited to nail this project.
