Photo of the Day: ADA students test their work

Senior Nicky Saffell puts the finishing touches on his catapult for his Advanced Design Application (ADA) class. Mr. Ackley’s sixth period ADA class will be launching their catapults outside on the track Monday, May 22, and Tuesday May 23. Saffell’s catapult broke in testing when the hinge that holds the arm ripped out of the base board. Saffell is hopeful but cautious about how the catapult will perform, “I think it’ll work until it splits,” he said. Saffell thinks it will break again, “history repeats itself,” he said.
