“Punkin Chunkin” Family STEM Night!

Students and parents joined forces as they participated in a fall themed Family STEM Night on November 10. Using various supplies, student/parent teams faced the engineering challenge of building catapults that could launch a “pumpkin”! Each team was challenged to build two catapults of their own design. Once completed they were ready to launch! Challenges included a Power Test, where teams were challenged to see which catapult launched the “pumpkin” the farthest, a Tower Test, designed to figure out which catapult could knock down a “tower” of cups, and an Accuracy Test, that determined which design could launch a “pumpkin” into a bowl. This event highlighted the engineering design process, student-driven learning and hands-on fun. It was a great evening and we look forward to our next event planned for February!
