STEM Challenge: Catapults

My students had so much fun working on the last STEM challenge of the year....catapults! They did some research on catapults, and then I gave them a toilet paper tube, paint stirrer, rubber-band, and a marshmallow. I told them that their challenge was to see who could launch a marshmallow the farthest using the given items. 
This was a super easy project to put together, and the groups did a great job trying different options to create the catapult!

1st Summer Project

Hooray for SUMMER!! I actually had a great class this year, but let's be honest....I'm thrilled to be out of school for the summer! I have so many projects that I want to get started on and have already finished the first one. I bought a dresser at a garage sale a while back and couldn't wait to redo it. Here is the before and after pic: 


What projects do you have lined up for the summer?
