    Catapult Construction

    Launch small items like pebbles, cotton balls, and coins. What goes the farthest? Test different designs to see which one works best.

    1. Stack 5 craft sticks and wrap rubber bands on each end. Change the size of your catapult by using more or fewer sticks.

    2. Stack 2 more sticks together and wrap a rubber band on one end.

    3. Separate the sticks at the other end and fit the 5 sticks between them. Secure with a rubber band.

    4. Glue a bottle cap onto the end of the top stick. You’re ready for launch!
