Activity: Build a catapult to test your engineering skills at designing the strongest, sturdiest castle in the kingdom! Learn about design constraints and building techniques as you construct your castle and then try to knock it down with your catapult. Through multiple builds and rebuilds design a castle strong enough to withstand any siege.

Volunteer training: Orientation and training will be during the week of May 17th based on volunteer availability.
