Today, India celebrates National Energy Conservation Day, so let’s take a page out of their book and do the same! Turn off the lights when you leave the room, unplug any devices you’re not using, and see if you can walk, bike, or take public transportation anywhere you need to go. We at RAFT believe that sustainability is something we can all get behind, so let’s do our best for the environment, today and beyond.

Although you might think today is mostly about conserving electricity and all kinds of fuel, STEAM education reminds us that there are so many types of energy that we encounter every day. With our Zippy Catapult STEAM Learning Kit, you can learn all about mechanical energy. Learn about the potential energy of a catapult ready to fire, or the kinetic energy of the object being launched. So, give this kit a try and unlock your own potential and the potential of STEAM learning!

Ever wanted to build your own catapult? It turns out you don’t need to go back in time. All you need are some simple materials like a plastic spoon, a cardboard tube, some popsicle sticks, and a few other items which are all available in our Zippy Catapult kit. By building this kit, not only can you give yourself a fun opportunity for some STEAM learning, but you can also use your ingenuity to practice sustainability using the repurposed items in our kit.

But what makes this kit so valuable for STEAM learning? This kit will help you learn about all the different types of mechanical energy and projectile motion. These lessons are foundational to the field of physics, so why not make them fun by building a small catapult?
