Kicking Machines!

posted Nov 3, 2014, 7:26 PM by Deborah A. Diner
On Thursday, we applied our knowledge of kinetic and potential energy in order to build kicking machines that would help clear the land for our fictional city.  Students had to design and build a machine that would kick a "rock" (ping pong ball) into a cup 12 inches away.  Each group did a fantastic job of working together, testing their ideas, and learning from their mistakes!  Check out the videos below to see each group's machine in action!
