How did you come up with the idea for your winning model?
I made one last year but couldn’t sit in it because it didn’t have strong legs. I made one this year and it works better. I also made a laptop so I added it.
What has been your most challenging K'NEX creation?
My chair was the hardest. It started out without armrests until I finished everything. Then I decided it would look better with armrests. I don’t know why it was the hardest. It was just kind of hard. The armrests were hard too.
