Jeff Bates from the University of Utah visited Cottonwood Elementary on Friday to teach students how to build a catapult and how to build and launch a rocket. This is the seventh year Cottonwood Elementary has hosted the event.
Students were excited when their catapult creation was a success.
“I can’t believe we made a successful catapult,” said third grader Samari Lopez.
The sixth grade rocket launch turned into an exciting adventure when a rocket made by Addison Jeffs was launched into a tree. After her second attempt, she received first place for the longest rocket launch.
