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. TIME
