PROBLEM

You will have to build a catapult Imagine you are a delivery person. Your boss is asking for a gadget to make the delivery quicker. You have always been a little inventor so you see a chance to succeed! You need help but you are lucky because you have a team. for a mission as Leonardo would do.

To build a catapult for a mission as Leonardo would do as a STEAM activity

PRODUCT

Be inspire by Leonardo’s catapult to design a prototype capable of shooting a tennis ball into a hoop. Actually the challenge is to land a basket in a hoop about 30 cm diameter and about 30 cm in height. The hoop has to be located at a distance of 1.5m of distance and it will be necessary for the shot to overcome an obstacle of 1m in height placed just in the middle.

ROLE PLAY

Leonardo's catalpult

1. Narrators

5. Technicians

4. Engineers

2. Historians

3. Physicists

Narrators present the task, the group, the eSafety or Netiquette activity.Historians find information about Leonardo’s CatapultPhysicists have to study the parabolic motion using an appletEngineers have to find ideas to build homemade catapultsTechnicians get all the videos and material to make a presentation of this collaborative internacional work.

They have to find examples of catapults which can be build to shoot a tennis ball to a hoop.Remember the challenge for each country is to make the ball land a basket in a hoop about 30 cm diameter and about 30 cm in height. The hoop has to be located at a distance of 1.5m of distance and it will be necessary for the shot to overcome an obstacle of 1m in height placed just in the middle.The mission is tofind resources(videos or websites) of prototypes of catapults which can be used to build yours in LOCAL groups.Draw a diagram representing the challenge.

They have to find information about the Catapult.Where can you find Leonardo’s sketches?What was the purpose of this gadget?Why did Leonardo design so many war gadgets?Compare the work and sketches of Leonardo da Vinci with modern day machines.

They have to find information about the Physics of a the movement of an object describing a parabolic motion.Use the applet PhET - Projectile Motionhttps://phet.colorado.edu/sims/html/projectile-motion/latest/projectile-motion_en.html‪Projectile Motion‬nullColoradoHow does the parabolic motion work?Which are the main factors to care when an object is thrown or projected into the air, subject to only the acceleration of gravity?

They have to present your group, this task and the containing activities.They have to give information about:all the members of your group (use the Twinspace profiles and mail, WhatsApp…)TASK 3 - Catapult challenge: what does it consist of? Its parts: eSafety/Netiquette (activity 1), Role play (activity 2) and catapult design (activity 3)

How does the parabolic motion work? There is a canon that throws a ball. Depending of the way of the parabolic motion and the main factors that ball get a high and a distanceWhich are the main factors to care when an object is thrown or projected into the air, subject to only the acceleration of gravity?The main factors are the height of the catapult, the angle of the catapult, the force of the ball, the weight of the ball, the mass of the ball and the gravity.
