CHS students in Mrs. Russell’s physics class are studying projectile motion. To help them grasp the concept, Mrs. Russell had students make catapults out of craft sticks, spoons, rubber bands, and hot glue. They then used the catapult to launch mini marshmallows to determine initial velocity of the marshmallow at various angles. Launch data was then used to calculate the angle they would need if given a target. Megan T. and Emily N. won for getting closest to the target. Addison D., Kyle S., and Joe S. won for having their marshmallow fly the farthest.

Addison D., Kyle S., and Joe S. proudly show off their catapult constructed in physics class. The trio’s contraption won for having their marshmallow fly the farthest.
