- Join to access all included materials
Hold a free-throw shooting challenge in your engineering class! Each team must design a contraption that will fire off a "robot arm" or, more specifically, a catapult, to send a Ping-Pong ball into a basket. Use this as an opportunity to teach mature learners about precision and accuracy, and for the rest, about teamwork and engineering design. This would be particularly useful when learners are studying the Middle Ages in their history classes.
- Engaging and exciting engineering lesson
- Meets several Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards
- Encourages cooperation, creativity, and critical thinking skills
