PICTURES AND REPORTS
Team Triumph Catapults
On Friday February 24th, students in Triumph demonstrated the effectiveness of their engineering capabilities. Using tongue depressors, plastic spoons and rubber bands catapults were fashioned. The distance that students were able to hurl a plastic cube, and the quantity of building materials used, determined the top three performers. Students boosted their scores by minimizing use of building materials. On the other hand, using more materials seemed to help toss the cubes further across the classroom space. Students had to learn a bit about statistics to evaluate the results. It was a great learning project. Many parents came to witness the culminating event.
