Default Grandsons Science Project "Arrow Dynamics"

My grandson is 9 and really enjoys science. He also enjoys shooting his bow, BB gun, and 22 rifle just as much. He decided on his own to do his science project on how the arch and drawback affect the flight of an arrow? Very fitting for TBH DIY!
I have bought him a much nicer bow but he really likes the first one he ever shot.
He is already way smarter than his proud Pops!

Has good archery form, just needs to change his grip a little. Sounds like a smart young man.

My kid won State a few years back with Archery and Energy project. Was really cool seeing very left leaning college teachers admire the relationship between arrow weight, velocity, and target penetration.

I did one when I was in elementary similar. We did how far different board heads would go into a target.

Congratulations to your grandson and you.

Curious, what was the weight of the arrows, and the shooting angle that got the most distance?
