Students are continuing their construction efforts with their STEM project today. In this particular project, the students must design a catapult that can launch a marble in a center target that is 3 meters away. I've separated my room, and I put the desks in the back of the room, and the "launch center" in the front of the room! Holy Moly! Flying Marbles!
Front of My Room:
Back of My Room
The Target... Ignore the green tape.. That's for another project.
Students get full points if their catapult makes it into the small circle and 85% of the points if their marble lands within the larger circle.
