A softball dropped from two stories and crashed into almost 200 popsicle sticks? Sounds like demolition, rather than competition. But two Cedarville professors have figured out a way to push student learning through this constructive, and potentially destructive, exercise in physics.
Dr. Cherish Lesko, adjunct professor of engineering, and Dr. Thomas Thompson, professor of mechanical engineering, are running this annual event, the crowning activity of their dynamics course. This year, it will be held Friday, April 13, in Cedarville’s engineering and science building atrium at 3 p.m.
