3, 2, 1 Launch!

High school physics students got a hands-on lesson in projectile motion. With a slingshot and water balloons, the students set out to discover how launch angle affects how far an object will go. Physics teacher, Nathan Mullins, was a good sport and sat as a target while his students launched water balloons at him. The students got close to hitting Mr. Mullins (as seen above), but they never quite reached their target.

Villa's faculty is committed to making science interesting and accessible. Using hands-on experiments such as the water balloon launch, science comes to life. To learn more about Villa's STEM program, contact Admissions Director Janet Baugh at 859-331-6333 ext. 139 or at jbaugh@villamadonna.net.
