Exeter-Milligan Science Update by Lorie Sliefert
The Applied Science class has been studying Siege Machines and each student has built model catapults. By varying the projectile size and tension used to power the catapult, they investigated how far the projectile traveled. They also made trebuchets, shown in the picture. They calculated how much mass they need in order for the projectile to hit a wall that was placed a set distance away. Pictured are Devin Sheffield (sitting) and Broc Mueller testing their trebuchets.
