The catapult project that we just finished was not what I expected. When it was assigned I expected it to be very stressful and take a long time. With all of the materials already available it turned out to be not that bad even though our catapult didn't go very far. It also taught me more about physics and clarify things I wasn't understand. When we had to solve the questions after it was fun to figure out how well our catapult did. I wish that I was more involved with the building of the catapult but in the end it turned out to be pretty good.

I agree with everything that you said Miranda! Even though we went through a lot of stress making it, in the end we learned a lot more about physics because we were doing problems hand on.
