Justine and I want to make something simple in order to have the best chance at success. We would most likely use legs and a motor in order to make it move.  Made of legs and the element it attaches to. It will just carry it self and be powered by the motor. We grabbed a bunch of random things and tried to find away to put them together.

Our first idea was to cut a styrofoam in half. We glue gunned a spring to the bottom of the cup.

After testing it with the motor we thought it could work out, it just needed more stability.
We broke two clips in two so we can use them as three legs and tape them to the cup. After testing it we realized the clips we were using for the legs were too heavy.

So we decided to glue gun three popsicle sticks to the Styrofoam cup instead, but one of the popsicle sticks wouldn't stick so we had to tape it.We decided to add sponges the the bottom of the popsicle sticks so it stays more balanced.

After testing it, it just bounced a bit but it was moving pretty well.
