3 lesson plans to pair with football science for super bowl week

Is Super Bowl Sunday generating excitement among your students? Talking about (or making) catapults and exploring questions related to physics, engineering, and math is a great way to tie the big game and the science of football to science class.

These three Lesson Plans help educators lead catapult science activities with middle school students:

  1. Ping Pong Catapult
  2. Ball Launcher Challenge
  3. Volleyball Machine Challenge for Middle School

Note: The Volleyball Machine Challenge is the 2019 Fluor Engineering Challenge. Lesson Plans are also available for grades 3-5 and high school.
