Club Invention: Castles, Catapults and Coats of Arms (Gr. 1-4)


Youth / Enrichment -
Youth Summer 2021 - Spring 2022

This program is an exciting afterschool program inspired by the Inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame (NIHF), where students will learn through hands-on fun. Castles, Catapults and Coats of Arms investigates basic scientific principles through the lens of medieval history. Students use their imaginations to take on the roles of lords, ladies, knights, craftspeople and serfs. They work together to complete hands-on challenges and discover that inventiveness has existed even in times of suppressed learning, helping them to build empathy and social awareness, along with responsible decision making.

THIS UNIT EMPHASIZES THESE INNOVATION MINDSET HABITS:

  • Exercising design thinking and creative problem solving to construct a castle wall and sculpt boats to transport cargo
  • Applying fundamental knowledge of STEM concepts while exploring history.
  • Creating, testing and recreating a catapult and drawbridge using simple machines.
