Girls Reaching to Achieve in Sports & Physics (GRASP)

2008 GRASP Activities - Monday June 23

  Monday | Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday | Friday  

Professor Hughes gave a lecture and demonstration on projectile motion.
After learning about projectile motion with Dr. Hughes, the girls made catapults using only popsicle sticks, glue, and rubber bands.
When the catapults were complete, we had a contest to see who could launch gummie bears and marshmallows the furthest and most accurately.
We headed to the RPAC to play basketball. The girls were taught how projectile motion relates to basketball.
The girls learned some basic basketball drills.
