really liked it

I built 4 of the projects from this book with a group of two dozen boys, grades 5-8.

match head rockets (24)
potato cannons (2)
tennis ball mortars (6)
flingers (4)

We had a really good time doing it. The Match head rockets were actually the least cooperative project and we all had a great time with the other builds.

If you are looking for some awesome science/ballistic fun, this book is the way to go!
