Summer Science: Catapults

The first of three summer science programs for school-age kids (ages 6-12) was catapults. I got the idea from HERE, with supplemental ideas from HERE. I opened with a brief explanation about catapults and how they work, then we spent the rest of the time building catapults, giving them a go, and making modifications.
