2 Simple Popsicle Stick Catapult Ideas to Build at Home


These popsicle stick catapults make a great STEM activity! We used technology to assist us in building our simple catapults. We used math to determine the supplies needed to build the catapults. We used our engineering skills to actually build the popsicle stick catapults. We used science to test how far the catapults flung the items we chose.


Which popsicle stick catapult fired the farthest? Great start to finish STEM activity with simple physics science play at the end!

POPSICLE STICK CATAPULT WITH RUBBER BANDS


This is a simple and quick popsicle stick catapult using just two supplies. The directions are clear. Please make sure an adult helps with making the grooves in the popsicle sticks. This requires a knife. Great practice winding rubber bands and counting out materials needed!

POPSICLE STICK CATAPULT WITH BINDER CLIPS AND ZIP TIES


Here’s our second popsicle stick catapult which may need more adult help, but it still quick! Gathering materials, counting materials, and following along is part of the learning process. He helped me start the zip ties and pointed to where they should go on the catapult. For this one we hot glued a bottle cap!

What’s a cool catapult without the right testing equipment {marshmallows preferably}. In order for it to be an experiment, you need to have a few items to compare. First we made our scientific guesses as to what item would travel farther. Then we had to use our observation skills to see what went the farthest. Grab a measuring tape for some quick math. Simple STEM learning with easy materials and quick ideas.
