(catapults) is a fun class where we get to build real working
weight driven catapults and learn about counter weights,
momentum, fulcrums, potential and kinetic energy no to mention
problem solving and data collection/reduction.
The kids learn how
to build the trebuchet then they learn how to improve it and
operate it, learning how to change the range and accuracy of
their weapon. We conclude the class by outlining a water
front and littering the "ocean" with enemy ships
that they have to hit with their weapon. Points are
awarded and the best team is declared champion!
