In Catapult Capers, students undertake a Forces Investigation requiring them to conduct a fair test by firing different projectiles from a catapult. The activity is carried out at your school, and has explicit links to The Australian Curriculum: Science. Students will use an investigation planner to predict, record, explain and evaluate their results. This investigation can also be used as an authentic assessment task. Who thought assessment could be so much fun?
