Bettendorf High School students will compete against students from Pleasant Valley, North Scott, Moline High and Durant schools in a trebuchet contest at 8:30 a.m., Friday, April 21.

Each team will attempt to launch raw eggs from its trebuchet accurately and consistently at targets 75-feet, 100-feet and 125-feet. The ultimate goal is to hit the bull’s-eye. Design presentations will be judged by Quad-City engineers.
