Parabola Project using "Minty Catapults"
Pocket Sized Minty Catapult - More DIY How To Projects
Here is a fairly simple and fun project when working with parabolas and quadratic equations in your algebra calss. I have made catapults before, but plan on trying this one out this year just to try something new. I found this at a great site called Instructables. The site actually has lots of ideas for all sorts of DIY projects in school and at home as well. You might want to check it out.
