Projectile Motion - Ball Launcher

What could be more fun than building a machine to automatically launch balls across the room?  This kit exposes children to three of the STEAM disciplines: science (projectile motion), technology (create a circuit), and engineering (construct the frame).

 

Science:

Learn about Galileo's theory of projectile motion and explore key concepts such as trajectory, parabolas, and velocity.  

 

Technology:

Learn how to make a complete circuit by wiring a battery holder to to a motor.  Which way do you need to wire the motor to make the wheels turn in the right direction?  

 

Engineering:

Construct the frame of the ball launcher using the included hardware and tools.

 

Key concepts:

  • Laws of Motion
  • Projectile Motion
  • Trajectory
  • Velocity
  • Parabola
  • Air Resistance
  • Complete Circuit
