SCIENCE Nerf Wars

Launch It!

Competing teams use their brains, bodies, and toy blasters to complete fun missions. All missions are safe and family-friendly, allowing ages 6+ and all skill levels to play. Parents wanting to play must register themselves as well as their children. Blasters and eye protection will be on loan, but you may bring your own. Blasters must be stock/unmodified and must be compatible with Nerf Elite or Boomco darts. No blowguns allowed. If you cannot fix your blaster when it jams, please do not bring it. Darts will be provided, please do NOT bring darts. We need a minimum of 10 participants to hold a battle (max of 18), to register a week before each Nerf War or that war will be cancelled. To learn more, visit BlasterFun.com.

Students will create and construct a variety of devices, such as marsh­mallow shooters, slingshots, rockets, and catapults to launch items into the air, hit targets, or create diversions. During the development of the item to be launched, students will use engineering skills of designing, building, testing and re-designing to improve the outcome. They will re-engineer their ­creation to better solve the challenge requirements. Example: create a paper airplane that will travel the farthest, spiral as it flies, or reach a target.
