## Reflection: Learning Communities Projectiles Launched Horizontally - Section 1: Video Introduction

...I had a simultaneous drop apparatus!

At an AP Physics conference in Boston a few years ago, I watched the facilitator use a homemade simultaneous drop apparatus to show exactly what the video is demonstrating.  I know that if students could see and touch this apparatus it would be a much more meaningful experience.  Unfortunately, I've yet to find a science catalogue that sells this item and I'm not tool-savvy enough to build my own.  Then again....if I want one....maybe other physics teachers would want one.....did I just find a way to supplement my income?!

I wish....
Learning Communities: I wish....
