|Students in 4th Period collaborate on a pumpkin slinger prototype.|
|This is a sketch that a student in 4th period produced to help build the prototype.|
Students worked through the design process and were given certain amounts of time to finish each section. Limited time was given for students to sketch and design, share with others, and then decide and sketch a final design. The students then had to list materials and procedures as well as build the prototype. Then, we launched the pumpkin slingers in the hallway. The best yet was a sling shot model that launched the pumpkin peep 1,407 cm!
