Carolina STEM Challenge®: Projectile Launcher Kit

Item # 750030 Exclusive

Grades 6–12. Combine 2 student favorites—building and making things fly—to investigate projectile motion and apply real-world, engineering problem solving. Student teams each construct a desktop launcher from a swing-arm protractor and then experiment with launch angles, launch mechanism, and types of projectiles. Once each team has developed its best launcher, start the class challenges for best distance, height, and accuracy.
