Engineering Fun: Make a Cardboard Box Cannon (STEM Project)

Ready, aim, fire! Let’s engineer some fun! In this STEM project for kids, we’ll show you how to make a cannon from a cardboard box and household supplies. While we’re at it, we’ll also explore concepts like potential and kinetic energy, pivot points, and more. This STEM activity is perfect for elementary-aged kids and covers a wide range of subjects, including science, physics, math, and engineering. Once you’ve built your cannon, experiment with different projectiles for hours of fun!
