Crossbows and Matchstick Rockets

On Sunday, April 27th, the Hackers met for a fun day in the park. First up, they each crafted a pencil crossbow; using pencils, pens, rubber bands, and straws. The kids had a blast seeing how far they could send the straws flying.

Next, they built matchstick rockets; using matchstick heads, tinfoil, paperclips, and careful supervision of a lighter. Our launch platform was a nearby BBQ grill.
