Students work for a company that is a leader in developing outdoor games. They must design and build a new multi-functional outdoor game using a catapult. With the engineering design process as a guide, students will research concepts related to catapults, brainstorm catapult designs, build, and test their own catapult. This kit contains enough materials for 10 students working in teams of four.
Students will design a vessel around an egg that represents the protective gear a stunt-person may wear when jumping from a building. Explore topics on gravity, velocity, Newton’s Laws of Motion, mass, weight, force, and acceleration.
