Catapult Contest

Hello;
We have been invited to participate in Elementary Engineering Week at the University. This is so cool because only a few get pick out of hundreds that apply. In order to participate we have to bring a working catapult that the students have made. The students are really excited. We read through the rules together but I am hoping you will go over them with your student as well and help them gather materials and offer any guidance as they build their catapults.
If you have any questions for me please let me know. We will be taking the best catapult from our class to compete with the other schools on February 21st. . The winner will receive a prize.Good Luck. Our students are amazing so I know we can win.
Thanks
