In this fun kids activity, Andrea Sella and his children experiment with materials to build the best catapult possible. They then use the slingshot to investigate how things fly through the air. By predicting and altering the variables, Andrea's sons get a feel for the scientific method while doing a great summer activity.

ExpeRimental, brought to you by the Royal Institution of Great Britain, is a series of free short films that make it fun, easy and cheap to do science at home with children aged 4 to 10.
