STEAM Goes Medieval: Creating Castles & Catapults

Incoming! In this 5-day camp, Apprentices will become engineers as they work in teams to build the strongest catapult and tallest tower that they can. To conquer the challenge, they’ll learn about levers and mechanical advantage, building techniques and balance. As well as becoming masterful engineers, they’ll tap into their creative side and make colorful birds and mascots to launch from the catapult. On the last day, teams will face off to try and knock down their opponents’ towers before their tower is tumbled, too!

Skills: Building, Testing, Simple Structures, Levers, Mechanical Advantage, Applied Design Process, Team-work
