Join us for some fun and scientific experiments led by Miss Myah. Come make a Critter Capsule and a Zippy Catapult. What makes this capsule jump like a critter? Students will be curious about motion, center of mass, and inertia with this fun activity! The reason for the capsule's tumbling motion is concealed by the foil which adds to its "mysterious" nature and provides an opportunity to practice observation and science process skills. The second experiment is to build a zippy catapult. We will use a bent spoon to store the energy needed to launch a pompom into the air. Explore different launch angles to vary the height reached and where the pompom lands. This program is for students 9-14 years old.
