Did you know that catapults can fire projectiles up to 1,300 feet, or that many ancient civilizations including the Romans, the Greeks, and the Chinese used catapults in warfare? These are just a couple of the interesting things our Discovery Club learned at last week's tween program, Catapult Craze.
We had 37 eight to twelve year olds at the Grandview Branch on Monday, September 13th, not only learning about catapults, but also having a chance to make their own. They all had a great time - who knew you could make such a cool catapult out of craft sticks and masking tape! Jessica comes up with all of our tween programs on her own, and we are excited to have a chance to offer them to our patrons at Grandview. Keep watching for our next tween program - you never know what we'll do next!
