Sophomores at iTech have been working hard in physics, math and engineering courses to create these launchers. You are invited to come see how they perform.

Friday, 2:15pm December 21st at WSUV VDEN auditorium, on stage in front of the entire iTech High School.

Learning Target: Design individually and construct with a team a projectile launcher to accurately and repeatedly send a tennis ball through the air and hit a target, with the materials provided.  Learning how to visually communicate through sketching, learning how to use and which hand and power tool for the right task in building.


Success Criteria:

Individually: Sketch several different designs that adhere to the constraints and communicate how the engineering of your plan will launch a tennis ball, and how you can calibrate and adjust the device to hit various ranges.

As a team: Build a launcher that adheres to the constraints and launches a tennis ball, to hit various ranges between 10 and 20 feet repeatedly.
