Our study of the Middle Ages concludes with two exciting STEM Challenges. The first is a siege weapon called the ballista. Student’s design and build a ballista that shoots marshmallows. The team that shoots the marshmallows the farthest will win this challenge. The second challenge is to create a watermill. The watermill must properly spin when water is poured from the top of a wheel without falling apart. Join us for this hands-on and minds-on class!
