This lesson plan is designed to peak the interest of future engineers. The students will have just finished learning about Newtons Forces and the Laws of Newton.
The students will follow an original design of a catapult, (given by teacher) then test the catapult. Students will then adapt their catapult and try to meet the expectations that are given in the rubric.
The lesson is generally done over three days, however students will be very engaged and want more time to work on their catapult.
The lesson comes with a student worksheet and analysis questions.
