John help us brainstorm of other ways we can use are material that we use for are first prototype towards the second prototype. We stick to the idea of using spring since it was something other students were not using. We build the prototype from springs, wood, pvc pipe, metal and kitchen supply. As we put all of our parts back together we started with the wood and what would be easy to use and what was consider trash.
After we made the holes to screw the metal plates to the wood, we went back to planning how we were going to use the spring to throw the ball with out bending the springs. The springs needed to be hold down so it could throw the ball.
