Hands on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) activities can get kids thinking critically while having fun. One of the simplest and coolest ways to see engineering in action is by making catapults for kids.
It’s a STEM activity you can play with again and again!
Making a catapult is fun but don’t stop there!
We’ve partnered with Sylvan Learning to help parents and kids develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills with fun STEM activities. We took some of the principles taught in the Sylvan EDGE classes and used them to explore STEM ideas with catapults.
Head over to their blog to see how kids can learn about force, levers, simple machines and more while sharpening their critical thinking skills–you won’t believe how fun it is!
Thanks to Sylvan Learning for sponsoring this post and encouraging hands-on STEM fun!
