We Launched a GoPro from a Trebuchet

What happens next is click bait journalism.



Ever seen a GoPro taped to ball fly across a field? We did it with trebuchets! Charlie Swift’s advanced engineering class launched their trebuchets on November 9th. These weapons of physics were  lined  up along the fence in the back dirt parking lot. Student launched softballs and we happened to tape one of our cameras to it.  The record launch this year was 320 feet.
