Episode Summary

Mechanical Crane
Ever wanted to win one of those stuffed toys at the bowling alley in the mechanical "Grab and Get" machines? Well these teams get the chance to practice a little. They have to build a mechanical hand, which a team member will operate. The challenge: Lift various objects from one crate and deposit them in another crate five feet away. Each team will have an equal number of objects to move. The first team to move all objects, or the team with the most objects moved, wins the game. Contributor: Thats_Good_Eatin The objective is to build cranes and have 10 minutes to move the 15 objects from one crate to another. The red team wins 10 minutes of design time while the blue team only gets 5. The blue team argues over the crane's design. Red team's problem comes to that they haven't settled on an idea for the base. At the last minutes, Red Team struggles with the grabber. Blue is coasting smoothly until they argue again on the claw's design. Red team is proud of finishing one second early. In the competition, Red Team's pinchers aren't working too well, the scoop is too big. Blue team starts out slow but breezes through the race.moreless
