Cool Science hosted our 5th Annual Kid’s Mini Fruitcake Toss on January 20th at iSpace in the Citadel Mall. Kids K-8th had the chance to build their own catapults and compete for prizes in three separate divisions. The metrics for success varied from the distance of marshmallows and cakes launched to how well the kids decorated their catapults.
The competition was fierce, but in the end clear winners emerged from each division. It was a fierce and fast day where kids and adults got to learn about the mechanics and physics of catapults!
