Science Blog 9/6/2017 Week 6 Catapults And Rocket Balloon.
What I've done. I have done rocket balloons and making catapults.
What I found out. That rubber bands help the spoon to not go to far back and snap. The rubber bands provide tension (tightness) for the catapult.
What I wonder. If you put stones in cotton balls they will go further than normal.
I think force is a
Push and pull and gravity. Gravity is something that helps us stay on earth .
Mini golf course - Week 7
I worked on the tiered seating.

I brought the cups and the wood.
It truned out really good be us every shot went in the first shot miss so we made some bounce platforms and then every shot went in the hole.so it went good made by Sam Findlay
Science blog week 8 catapult
FORCE IS……. A force like gravity and push and pull we tested a pull force game of tug of war we tested boys vs girls and year 5 vs year 6 .
Gravity draws objects towards the earth’s centre, pull is a towards you force and push is a forward force. We
Today Sanjive and I finished our catapult data. We finished the one cotton ball one, then we got on to the 3 cotton ball one. Sanjive
And I think that it went good here is the data.
When we fired it the spoon went wobbly so we changed the height. It changed a lot like the speed and made it go longer. I changed the angle of the spoon. We also changed the weight of the cotton balls. We started with 1 and then changed it to 3.
Here's the finished product
it went good. I think it went good because the height and the structure of the catapult. The furtherest distance with one cotton ball was 12m and 20cm. The furtherest with 3 cotton balls was 11m 16cm.
