Science project

My oldest son asked me to help him with his science project.  They are building a catapult and several kids have a specific assignment for parts.  He did not have a blueprint for the design, so we did the best we could.  We cut and drilled his parts in a way that we can modify them if necessary.  I taught him how to use a tape measure and mark with a “carrot.”  I also showed him how to put a 2″ X 4″ on either side of the 2″ X 4″ we were drilling to keep it from tipping over, and putting all three boards on another board so we didn’t drill into the ground.  My kids are growing up too quickly.
