SEX. Now that I have your attention, help with common app.

<p>Hi, so over the last summer and during weekends a couple friends and I built a hovercraft and a trebuchet and a potato gun. I think that these sort of engineering building activities are cool and unique, and so I want to put them on my common app. Should I list it as an extracurricular activity? If so how should I list it. Should I write the short answer essay about them? Or should I put them into the additional information thing? Please help. Thanks.</p>

<p>A short answer essay would be the best way to demonstrate these skills to colleges. My son filled our garage with cool things like this in high school during his spare time! </p>

<p>Good luck!</p>
