See how educators at Liberty Science Center use Arduino boards and toys to build programing and engineering skills. The engineering workshop begins with students making a catapult using office supplies. Students test and modify their designs to improve their accuracy. Next, students make a trebuchet. The students learn about the programing involved in making an Arduino-controlled motor swing the arm of the trebuchet.
Use the activity Engineering Catapults from Liberty Science Center in the Support Materials to practice engineering with your students.
