In this workshop, you will examine the physics and engineering concepts involved with the flight of projectiles, including propulsion mechanisms, aerodynamics, and gravity. You will study how to convert potential energy into kinetic energy by designing and building a variety of launching systems such as slings, bows, catapults, and rockets.
You will learn:
