Project #1:     WCHS Bridge Projects

Our first Physics Class project of the year is to construct a bridge from wooden toothpicks and wood glue. Each bridge is to be designed at the students discretion, using principles learned in the Physics Lab & Classroom. Students always bring in bridges of every imaginable design. After initial examination, each bridge is tested for basic principles and strength.

Project #2:     WCHS Catapult Projects

Our second class project is to design and construct a Catapult. Each student is to design a Catapult using readily available materials, and applying the principles learned in the Physics Lab & Classroom. The Catapults are evaluated on design concept in the Classroom.  Then all designs are tested on the Football Field for distance and accuracy. The winning Catapult Design will be shown here.
