Pumpkin Chunkin, Elections, and Electro-Magnets

This week we began with some Pumpkin Chunkin with student made Trebuchets.  the designs were all unique and the distance and height of the pumpkins they tossed varied a great deal.

The distance winners were: Vlad and Dan, the height winners were: Jake and Max, and the unique design winner was: Kevin.

We also held our officer elections and experimented with building basic electro-magnetic devices using nails, magnets, and wine.  The real world applications of this kind of science are extensive with examples like Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS).
