    STEM activity for kids - make a craft stick catapult

  • Chelsea Berg

    Craft Stick Catapult - I made 4 of these in 5 minutes and they work great! You need 8-10 craft sticks, 4 rubber bands, hot glue or tape, and a bottle cap (I cut apart an egg carton because I didn't have any bottle caps).

catapult: fully-working and operational catapult made from eight popsicle sticks, one straw, a plastic spoon, two rubber bands, two screws, some bits of eraser, a block of wood and some wood glue.

Build the catapult in different sizes, or with different rubber bands, or pencils of different length - discuss the changes each variable makes to the resultant motion of the projectile.  Demonstrate circular motion and rotational KE. Based on the relevant principles, have the kids design and build other working models of catapults. Here are some ideas.
