To reinforce the lesson, students will make and demonstrate catapults.

The cost to attend is $8 per student; ($6 for Museum Family Members). One parent or teacher per family enters free; the cost is $3 per additional adult. Children age 4 and under also enter free; the cost is $3 each for them to participate in a hands-on activity.
