Family Science Day – Catapult Challenge! Parents and kids, come investigate your world during a Family Science Day. On Family Science Days, we offer our regularly schedule programming but add a special program around one topic. This time it is "Catapults." Are you ready to build your very own mini-catapult? In this family workshop, you’ll work together on an engineering challenge as we explore how to harness elastic potential energy to launch projectiles! Each participant will get their own catapult. Recommended for ages 7 and up. Didn't get a spot in our Catapult sessions? Don't worry- join us during the day for other fun activities included YMCA activities, Pumpkin Chunkin catapult displays, and planetarium shows! Rain or Shine.
