Mobile catapult design process

Bradlee Cruise

3B

Ms. Fitzpatrick


Define the problem

  • The class was tasked with constructing a wooden catapult capable of tossing a clay ball that was now mobile

Define the problem


Brainstorm

  • I know the catapult must be constructed using screws to ensure its stability as well as have wheels

Brainstorm


Identify criteria and specify strengths

  • The catapult must be made of woodMust be stableMust be able to fling a small ballCannot be may using a pre-made kitMust be mobile in some way

Identify criteria and specify strengths:


Explore possibilities

  • I know I can use a rubberband on the catapult to ensure its powerful. Also rubberbands are more durable than strings. I can use wheels to make the catapult mobile

Explore possibilities


Select an approach

  • Make a wooden catapult with wood pieces binder together with screws and a rubberband to power it with wheels on the bottom axles.

Select an Approach


Make a model or prototype

Make a model or prototype


Test and evaluate the design using specifications

  • The catapult was successful and the only problem was the rubberband snapped which can easily be replaced. The catapult was indeed mobile as well with the addition of the wheels

Test and Evaluate the design using specifications


Redefine the design

  • I tweaked the sketch to make it presentable

Redefine the design


Solution

  • My design was very successful and was in compliance with all criteria

Solution


Results

  • The catapult was very durable, powerful, and was capable of moving with wheels.
