Suggestion for Challengegreenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
Let's see if I can make this one understood. The basic challenge is to make a sorting machine. The teams must build a machine that can move along a short course, picking up variously-sized foods (an egg, onion, tomato, pumpkin, etc.) without crushing or brusising it, place it on some sort of conveyor which sorts them into appropriate hoppers, again without damaging the item. Points are gained by speed of completion of the total course with points deducted for missed, bruised, improperly sorted or ruined items. For some added challenge, some items should be square or other geometric shapes than just round or oval.

Answer:a gocart with 3 weels that you stear with the rear weels and also can go around a short course and pick up food like an egg,onion,tamato,pumpkin etc. Without crushing or bruising it,place it on some sort of conveyor wich sorts them into oppropriate hoppers, again without damaging the item. Points are gained by how fast you finish the course and the condition of the food.
