It doesn't get any happier or simple than this does it? Punkin Chunkin.
This is the physics project of my son's team in action. They had great distance. They helped out the team next to them and the spring loaded catapult pumpkin went further. The students worked so hard!
It was thrilling to watch what these teenagers did. It was great to see their hard work. It was scary because pumpkins went everywhere, including backwards. Part flying, heavy weight heaving and swaying , the wood frame groaning.
It was great to see them go splat!
