Unit:  Ea

Launch into learning as students work together to build a catapult and launch an object using a spoon!

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. Ideal for up to 24 students working in groups of 6. Recommended for Middle School and up.
