This is your opportunity to learn something new! This week, Miss Tess shows how to make a marshmallow catapult! This STEM activity showcases kinetic energy. When you pull back on the spoon, kinetic energy is transferred from the spoon to the marshmallow, which launches it! How far can you get your marshmallow to fly?

Join us every Tuesday in May as we share new things to learn!

Kids ages 5 - 12, with parent's permission, can submit a photo or video of what they learned this month (a fun fact, a new song, a new language, a new dance - almost anything!) via social media or an email to APLReadingRocks@AuroraGov.org to be entered to win a prize! Last day to enter is Friday, May 28. Click here for more info.
