Engineers Week: Making Catapults

As part of Engineers Week, some of the 2nd classes have chosen to undertake a STEM challenge: to make catapults.

We really enjoyed constructing our catapults   “The Pinger” (perfectly pitched at our level) was the best.  Some of us even designed a double catapult which allowed two balls to be launched in two different directions at the same time.

We really enjoyed making the catapults and then launching ping pong balls and pom poms to knock targets!
