Dr. Ford taught the elementary children how to make medieval catapults today. What fun! They learned how to design and create them, and also how to figure out the velocity of each launch. This involved calculating distance and time. What a wonderful experience for the children!!
Dr. Ford also showed the elementary children a hovercraft he had built with his children, Matthew and Evelyn. Each of the children had a chance to ride it and to learn about the workings of the machine. What a fun way to spend Valentine’s Day morning!!
