Cracker Catapult

Cracker Catapult (Grades 4-8)

Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Architecture, Construction

An earthquake in Hawaii has collapsed the only bridge leading into or out of a town. The town’s people are stuck, and in need of supplies! In order to transport supplies over the collapsed bridge, the neighboring town built a catapult and is flinging materials from one side to the other! The students solve this problem by designing a way to protect supplies from being damaged as they are sent to the town in need using only the materials provided.
