Catapulting Towards the Future


Students work in groups to design and construct a catapult with a goal to hit a target with various parameters. In this project students investigate concepts of elasticity and projectile motion. Each catapult must have a User Manual and be field tested. Each team is then assessed using engineering criteria including: collaboration, aesthetics, manufacturing ability and durability.
