Snowball Catapults ~ STEM Challenge

We spent some time designing and engineering Snowball Catapults.  What else can we do when winter seems to be never-ending?  The kids came up with some great ideas and they were able to launch their “snowballs” quite a distance!  Check out some of their design ideas…

We used indoor snowballs that I got from Amazon!  The kids thought they were so much fun!

Why not try some engineering with your kids?  I promise you they will love it (and learn a lot)…

  1. A great idea! We don’t get a lot of snow here in Australia but still would be lots of fun to make when we look at weather around the world. Plus a good science experiment to boot. Thanks 🙂
