Kent Innovation High Presents Propel Camp

You could spend a week this summer watching someone on TV launch objects through the air, maybe you could even play a video game that does. Or perhaps, you could spend a week designing and actually building catapults and trebuchets to PROPEL these projectiles yourself!

Propel Camp is a four day long experience for 6-8th graders to explore and DO science, technology, engineering, art, and math in real life. For 4 days, students will work in teams to build the ultimate catapult, and use their machine to compete against other teams at the end of the week in a variety of competitions.

S.T.E.A.M. Focused

Science: Grapple with the physics of projectile motion

Technology: Use historic and modern tools to design and build

Engineering: Draft and refine your ideas using computer software

Art: Use graphic design to make banners to represent your team

Math: Figure out how to make it all work
