Holy Catapults, Batman!



blog-0780350001415214056.jpegLast Thursday my class launched our catapults on a football field. My partner and I, were a little bit frustrated with the project, having little experience with power tools and building mechanically sound structures. The day of the launch we were both nervous and excited; our catapult was among one of the smallest on the field. We attempted to get our softball to launch at a 45 degree angle, seeing as that is the best angle for the greatest distance to launch. Unfortunately, our catapult went about 1 m every time we launched it. It was still fun despite the rain! There were huge catapults that went a small distance as well. We felt proud of our little catapult :) Here's a picture of it:
