The BIG LAUNCH

Team’s 1270 and 1532 are trying to launch the big ball. You can watch the video at:

Well… I am guessing you guys (and girls) sorry are mocking up a catapult type propelled force to launch the ball…lol

We need more power Scotty: :cool:

Ach, the beam cannot do it Captain!

(Teleportation beams would hurdle nicely though.)

most teams that have prototyped have found that catapulting the ball doesn’t work. Have you tested your design on the field to see if it goes high enough?

A form of catapult does indeed work, I’ve seen it done in person.
