The class had so much fun continuing our unit on Force & Motion today with the help of the Science Channel's Punkin Chunkin show. There were some amazing "chunkin" moments, and the students could not believe that some of the pumpkins were traveling 650 miles per hour!
The students learned how gravity and force affect motion... and got see pumpkins flying through the air and "smash landing" at the same time! This was such a great way for the students to get to see how to use engineering with science. Hopefully this will get the students excited about making our own catapults next week!
