First Meeting Debriefing
Today’s meeting was extremely successful. We started in Mr. McLain’s room with a briefing and explanation of the prototyping exercise. The goal was to launch a ball from point A to a hula-hoop. Groups of 4-5 worked together to create designs then bring them to life using springs, surgical tubing, hinges, 2×4 and other assorted materials. Most groups went with the classic catapult design but other went for ballista and sling shots. While we did not finish our designs, we will continue on Tuesday, January 5th the first Tuesday after break, and will finish our designs and hold our competition. Thank you for everyone who attended and we are looking forward to the season.
