Creativity Lab
Included with Admission
8 and up
45 minutes

In this catapult-like project, creators will apply the basic principles of physics and engineering. Using a limited set of craft materials, challengers will build a device to launch a ball as far as possible. As an added twist, the challenge will also include constructing a receiver to catch it! The greater the distance, the higher the score.

  • This workshop will be held May 1 – May 5.
