Description:

In this design challenge activity, learners invent a way to send a Ping-Pong ball flying high enough to catch it - like football with a twist! Learners use paint stirrers, a wooden spool, tape, and their feet to launch the ball. This fun hands-on activity introduces learners to the design process while exploring levers.
