Educator Training Series: Design It! Explore It!: Engineering Trebuchets!

Mon, 11/18/2019
4:00pm - 7:00pm

Trebuchets were engineered due to an enhanced understanding of gravity and potential energy, and acceleration—each of which is a key concept in engineering today. This design project allows educators to use the engineering design process to research, design, and build a trebuchet. Educators will learn about the engineering design process as they design and explore trebuchets. 

This is a fun and exciting introduction into the world of Engineering. The workshop is appropriate for adults and volunteers who work with youth in out-of-school time or classrooms.  Content most appropriate for youth ages 5th-9th, but can be adapted as needed.
