An example of students trying out the physics of their ideas


From Sarah, Maya and Connor

For our contraption, we made a teetor totter and placed a bucket on the end. We then have water balloons above it, in this case attached to the tree. The idea is to shoot the water balloons with a bow and arrow which then pops the balloon and the water goes into the bucket. The weight of the water pushes the teeter totter downwards which will then trigger the next contraption.
