STEM Challenge: Building 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 2 different kinds of catapults   “The Pinger” (perfectly pitched at our level) and “The Monster Mover” (a difficult challenge for 2nd class).

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