WE WILL GET YOU LEPRECHAUNS!!!!!!

QUESTION

How can I catch a leprechaun using a simple machine?

HYPOTHESIS

I think I will be able to make a leprechaun trap with a pulley. I will use an oatmeal box to cover with paper and I will use an old pulley we had in our garage and use yellow tread to use as a rope to pull.

DIAGRAM

My idea looks great but how will it look when its done. I might have to make some changes.

Procedure

I got an oatmeal box and began to cover it in green paper. I used an old thread wheel as the wheel and a kabob stick as a dole. I tied a yellow string around the wheel and tried a small plastic cup to the string. I made a pipe cleaner ladder and a rainbow slide with clouds on it I filled the cup with Werther's because there gold wrapper is a gold color.

Data

I changed my mind halfway through I decided to use an inclined plane and a wheel and axle.

CONCLUSION

My pulley was great but I shouldn't wait till last minute to build it. I would have done better if i started when the project was handed out. I thought the old thread wheel was a good idea. I added a little bit more when I added the inclined plane as a slide to the trap also.
