The Lancaster Science Factory and the Optimist Club present:

SPLAT-A-PULT: A STEM Game of Strategy and Skill

This is a competition based on the trebuchets and catapult game of accuracy and precision.

Students will briefly be introduced to projectile motion, and will learn the connection to force, angle and mass as it relates to the motion of the projectile. Students, registering as a team, will then be provided the opportunity to create a catapult given design structure to test their new found knowledge for their chance to win a Pizza Party at the Science Factory for up to 25 people!

Teams will then enter the SPAT-A-PULT Competition:

Each team will SPLAT for points on each of the designated fields during the first round of competition. The point values for the first round will be totaled and recorded. During second round of competition TEAMs will then request via paper and launch from their choice of the three fields for two additional launches. These values will then be totaled and added to the first round of competitions. The third round of competition will be the interview session where an additional 10 points are available.

Official rules and description is available here.
