Catapults evening program is an all-group activity that challenges students in the engineering process. Students will receive a presentation about the history and design of catapults, and will then be asked to work in small groups to design and build a catapult. The scientific method will be incorporated into designing and testing their catapults. At the end of the program, students will engage in a competition of accuracy, height, and distance with the goal of defending Pathfinder Ranch from a dragon.
This evening program will include…
- A presentation about the history and design of catapults.
- Scientific method and engineering process.
- Hands-on exploration of physics concepts.
