This activity provides pupils with the opportunity to learn how forces affect the motion of a projectile, the optimum angles for launching a projectile the farthest and the effects of potential and kinetic energy by designing and making their own cork launcher. Pupils can work individually or as part of a team, using everyday items to build an alternative type of catapult that works like a slingshot.
