So these Engineering Students are trying to build this contraption and they have duct tape going, there is bailing wire, there is the most rickety platform for some sort of golfball, railing, travel fuse thingy ( that's the technical term so bite me ) - Man alive, I was in tears......
They needed a cannon, so team 3 "borrows" a potato cannon from some group on campus and demonstrates it for the teachers. The potato went about 20 inches from the launcher and one of the teachers burst out laughing.... LOL
Later on the teacher ended up making a super cool, super simple black powder cannon that fired an 8 inch bowling ball about 400 feet through the air.
It's definitely got a Mythbusters type of feel to it, but the people performing the works of "science" are definitely NOT the experienced type.
Of the whole 6 person build team, one dude could run a table saw and swing a hammer. The rest of them looked like a bunch of Muppets.
Definitely going to tune in next week and see what new disaster they recreate.... LOL
