This afternoon the seventh and eighth grade students completed their trebuchet projects with a water balloon throwing competition. The project required the students to work in teams designing and building trebuchets that would launch water balloons toward targets on the playground. The four teams launched balloons for five very exciting minutes. The whole school had the chance to watch and cheer on the teams. Points were awarded for balloons that landed and broke in the targets. The number of balloons thrown, and the number of good hits were tallied to give an accuracy percentage that helped determine the winners. Congratulations to all the teams!
