Flour-Launching Contest Featured

The April 16 trebuchet contest on the quad between Professor Steve Penn's physics class and Greg Baker's Geneva High School class was featured in the April 18 Finger Lakes Times article “Ancient weapons and flying flour — Local students hold physics contest at HWS.” Baker is a member of the Hobart Class of 2000. The students, in teams, built trebuchets and competed to see which could throw a bag of flour the farthest and launch with the greatest accuracy.
