Dunbar uses projectile baby stroller in physics demonstration

The Oracle: How does this apply to your class?

Bill Dunbar: We’ve been learning about projectile motion, {like} when a cart
shoots a ball up in the air and lands in the cart.

TO: Has anyone asked you if you’re crazy for doing this?

BD: No not yet. We’re working on making a better demonstration in the next
few years {so the baby lands correctly in the stroller}. But crazy?  No.
