Three Catapult Science Lesson Plans for Super Bowl Week: Hands-on Science Lessons. www.sciencebuddies.org

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.
