Come Make Your Own Marshmallow Catapult

Come make your own Marshmallow Catapult with the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Lewis County!

Marshmallow catapults are not only fun to play with, but also provide an
educational demonstration on energy. Potential energy is the stored
energy in an object at rest. Kinetic energy is exerted by an object in
motion. Catapults use stored energy to launch objects. When a catapult is
in the loading position, it holds potential energy. As the arm of the
catapult releases, it exerts kinetic energy. Your challenge is to build a
catapult that will launch a marshmallow six feet. Good luck!

Cost $2 per participant.
