Expert response from Jennifer Heldmann:
Very creative design! Very good that you have listed all the equipment you will need to construct your device. For the next round of work, think about ways you could possibly simplify your design (currently the design is very complex)! Always be sure your experiment is safe. Also, think about ways you can measure the amount of ejecta and the angle of impact. Good luck!
