Marshmallow Catapults

Our College Prep Physics class is catapulting ahead. Literally! During their study of the concept of projectile motion, students tried their hand – and calculations – via marshmallow catapults. (A marshmallow in the bucket earned them extra points on their test, and we’re happy to report that everyone succeeded.) Next week they’ll take a break from the books for an egg drop competition.
