Product Description
A fun STEM lab where students create a "Marshmallow Hurler" that demonstrates the transfer of energy. This was used in a 7th grade classroom. Older students could use this to discuss elastic potential energy as well. Make this your own! This is a hit in my class room and we even have a trophy!

You need to supply items for building!
I used popsicle sticks, tongue depressors, paper clips and rubber bands and of course mini-marshmallows for hurling. Feel free to add or subtract supplies for an added challenge.

Focuses on:
Student Creativity
Group Problem Solving
Design Cycle

Students are graphing data as well as answering extended response questions based on energy transfers.

Can easily be altered for lower or higher grades

My students love it!
