Designing and Building Catapults

Seventh graders complete a challenge to create a catapult that projects a marble or other projectile at least one meter. While experimenting they apply the Four Question Strategy to answer the question, " How can I make one modification or change to the structure of the given catapult design to improve the launch distance?" They complete the associate lab paperwork and supporting materials.
