Our team held its first catapult competition! Four teams set out to design and build a catapult that would ultimately launch a tennis ball the farthest. While some catapults were only able to launch the tennis ball several yards, one was able to launch the ball over 55 yards! Nonetheless, all of the catapults were successful in launching the tennis ball and all of the members of the four teams deserve many applauds for their time and efforts. As a result of this successful competition, our team hopes to continue hosting a catapult competition for new members each year!
The winning catapult can be seen in the gallery and slideshow below. It is clearly marked with the numbers “114″ in red spray paint.
