This is an interactive STEM lesson with an emphasis on project-based learning. Using a basic assortment of household items, students must create a catapult that can shoot a marshmallow as far as possible.
This lesson includes a whole class discussion, hands on creation of a designed product using the engineering process, and completion of 3 worksheets covering the design, testing and evaluation phases.

By the end of this lesson students will be able to:
→ Represent & communicate design ideas through drawing
