Create the ultimate catapult and launch water balloons at the neighborhood kids! By engineering different mechanical elements of the catapult, students can manipulate movement, accuracy, range, and damage to drench even the most evasive of targets. Students learn how to define engineering problems in terms of the criteria and constraints of a given task, create a model for generating data that allows for iterative testing, and use test results to develop and modify engineering solutions in order to optimize a design. Playable on Android tablets 4.2 or newer with quad-core processors and 2 GB RAM, and on iPad® 2 or newer with iOS 7.
Aligned to middle school science standards including Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core State Standards, and Benchmarks for Science Literacy. Teacher’s guide includes discussion activities, workshops, labs, and assessments. Students follow along with the included student guide, which allows for seamless communication between the lessons and the game play.
