Product description

The Pitsco Torsion Ballista Kit provides students in grades 6-12 a hands-on activity to build a model ballista that demonstrates the scientific concepts of force, tension, torque, simple machines, and Newton's laws of motion, and it includes laser-cut basswood parts to build the model ballista. The kit includes laser-cut basswood parts, braided nylon twine, screws, a paper clip, two Styrofoam balls, and instructions. The ballista launches the balls for experiments in projectile motion and potential and kinetic energy. The kit reinforces technology, engineering, and math concepts as students build and experiment with model ballistas. The finished ballista measures approximately 3-1/8 x 7 x 6 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) A ballista kit is typically used in an educational setting to demonstrate physics and simple machines.

Construction requires a screwdriver, white glue, a ruler, and scissors (all sold separately). Launching requires safety goggles (sold separately).

Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom and homeschool-based projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.

Pitsco Education develops K-12 science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum, educational kits, and classroom tools. The company, founded in 1971, is headquartered in Pittsburg, KS.
