EdVenture’s first session this year, the sky was the limit as students designed, built, tested, and revised their plans to build catapults. This physics based unit involved the study of several types of simple machines in order to successful create a compound machine. the catapult. Students learned the history of the catapult and concepts related to store energy of tension, torsion, and gravity used to propel objects. Their culminating project was to work in groups to create their own strong catapult to launch pumpkins. With different targets set up on the hill, students from our Junior Kindergarten classes to Grade 8 enjoyed getting to watch the final launch competition!
