Catapult challenge winners

This week in Inquiry the class has started investigating forces and Newton’s Laws of Motion.


We had a contest to see which group could build a working catapult with a given set of materials in a very limited amount of time from design to testing to working model. Everyone had lots of fun and stray cotton balls were frequently seen flying through the air – having deviated from their intended course!

Great fun! Here are the winners:

First place: S & A with a distance of 3m

Second place: G, K, & P with a distance of 2m 65cm

Third place: S, D & M with a distance of 2m


We’ll be taking what we’ve learned into the coming week as we continue our investigations.

Take Care!

Mr. L
