Hey you go-getters, this one’s for you! Build a small catapult system and be as creative as you want with it! But first, hear from the structural design experts at Robinson Engineering. They’ll demonstrate how the height, angle of projectile, and other factors can determine how far an item will launch. Concepts of physics, engineering, and gravity will also be briefly explored. Feel free to chat with your neighbors to collaborate on your structure - that’s what neighbors are for, right? We’ll also have a competition at the end, to see which catapult launches the fartheshttps://thebridgeteencenter.org/admin/entries/programs/42570-stem-engineer-a-catapult-w-robinson-engineering#t. Winner gets bragging rights! You may be wondering what item we’ll be launching. Sign up and come find out!
