student drawing of launcher and impactor

Expert Response from Jennifer Heldmann:
Very creative design!  Nice work to use the slingshot model.  For your experiment, how will you measure the angle at which your impactor hits the "lunar" surface?  What do you plan to use for the "lunar" surface (what will the impactor be hitting)?  Remember to always be careful when using the slingshot - safety first!
