I missed last year's trebuchet fun when a car got hit, but I made sure to take some pictures and a bit of video this time around, Tuesday, November 10.
Dr. Paul Hinrich's Physics class constructed six different models of trebuchets and tested them out at 3:00 in the afternoon behind AV Larson.
Take a look at the photographs.
Each of the machines attempted to hoist an Osage Orange into the air and hit a target in the field adjacent to the road behind Larson. And the student-constructed devices smacked the target a number of times.
A couple of trebuchets lofted the lime-colored projectile beyond the target and into the woods.
I also made a short video--with some slow motion--to show a couple of the machines in action.
I also recorded from a couple years ago, another entertaining display of trebuchet at PSC.
