Catapults! – Kinetic and potential energy

Catapults! We will be building equipment and launching projectiles!

This month's class (catapults) will be a bit different from previous classes. There will be less lecture and more hands on building and doing by the kids. We are going to have the supplies to make catapults, objects to hurl, and tasks to complete. Designs can be completed individually or in a group. Designs will be demonstrated for everyone.

We have a list of supplies that PEMDAS will need for the class to be successful. If you are donating supplies, please come 10 minutes early (9.50am) so that we can set up. Class will start at 10am.

Have Fun! Be Safe! Learn Lots!
