Catapult Project by Rolan Duclayna 8th Grade

For science class we had to do this project where we had to make a catapult because we were learning about machines. Our science teacher told us to make a catapult with 3 different people. My partners and I planned the catapult and researched different ideas and ways on how to make a catapult. After we were done with the research, we started making the catapult and it ended up being more fun than I thought. We made the catapult at my house, but I only did it with one of my partners. One of my partners couldn’t come to my house, so it ended up being only me and my other partner who did the work. The catapult wasn’t very hard to make and only took 1 day to make the first draft, but we fixed it and added a couple of improvements in the next couple of days. Overall it was a fun experience and our science teacher ended up giving us an A on it and the catapult actually works pretty well too.
