Wooden Popsicle Sticks

Ryan and his dad had a friendly little competition going at the studio yesterday under the pretense of who could make a catapult launch farther. They set right to work gathering popsicle sticks and string along with other sturdy stuff.  It was quite fun to see the process of building, the engineering elements that go into making movable parts work. I noted smiles as they viewed each others works from one table to another. And on the work went. I imagine there is nothing more gratifying than making an idea live and breathe.

When all was said and done corks were the thrusted artillery that softly bounded through the air as the friendly competition came to a close. One catapult threw higher, the other one farther. All is fair in love and war.
