Product Description

STEM Starters Catapult

STEM Starters provide students with essential tools to complete hands-on projects. When combined with everyday items, these materials can be used to design and execute a project using creative exploration and the engineering design process. By approaching a problem or a challenge with this thought process, children are able to make educated guesses, problem-solve, and learn without the fear of making a mistake. Perfect for individuals or small groups. This STEM Starter challenges students to create their own catapult. The essential pieces (craft sticks, paper straws, pom-poms, rubber bands, wooden dowels, plastic cups, and paper blocks) are provided; it’s up to the young scientists to determine the best combination of materials to design their own creation. Incorporating common household or classroom materials makes endless personalized catapult opportunities. Six pom-poms in three different weights serve as projectiles. Using the engineering design process, students will create, evaluate, and redesign their simple machine until their objective is met. An eight-page guide for parents and teachers includes an overview of the engineering design process, follow-up questions, extension ideas, and links to additional online resources. Includes enough materials to begin 6 catapult devices. 100 total pieces.

I love shopping here

I love shopping here for unique and interesting birthday presents. They offer free wrapping for gifts and the associate that helped me did a fantastic job of wrapping odd shaped items. She really took pride in the work she was doing.

Great for teachers

Great selection of educational toys, tools and books for kids. Great for teachers and parents alike. Staff are knowledgeable and compassionate. It could use a paintjob, it felt a bit like a warehouse with the bare walls and minimal colour.
