Learn about motion and trajectory using a spoon catapult students design and build themselves!

Working in small groups, students decide how to build a catapult with a spoon, popsicle sticks, and rubber bands in any way they choose. Using the Engineering Design Process, students work through issues they may encounter with their simple machine. After creating the catapult, groups attempt to launch a pom according to challenge parameters. Students can make adjustments as needed to increase success and define the variables that changed.
