Goal

In STEM academy we have been building models of Trebuchets. We would like to build a life size Trebuchet that will be able to "sling" pumpkins across our football field. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will design and build the trebuchet using tools and materials used in the real world. Students have researched and become "experts" on trebuchet because this as been a true inquiry project. All the teacher did was write on the board "How do we build a trebuchet?" and the students have done all the work 

 

Benefits to my students

Students will get experience with real world tool and applications. Students will use math and physics to help design the life size trebuchet and when we "show" it off to the school students will gain experience talking in front of large groups  

 

Describe the Students

Students come from a title one school and have a mix of abilities. Some students come from our magnet program and some come from our traditional classes. There is a good mix of 6th , 7th and 8th graders.  

 

Budget Narrative

All funds will go to materials to build the trebuchet.
