Engineering Challenge # 6 - Cardboard launcher

Your next challenge is to design a way to move a ball from one place to another without touching it with your hands.  Call it a launcher, a kicking machine, a catapault or whatever you want!

Here are some picture ideas to get your started...



Basic supplies for this project are:
cardboard, pencils, rubber bands, glue, &  tape

Here is a fairly easy catapault design tutorial.

These two are a little more involved...

Here is a good website for designing a kicking machine
