PRHS Students Enter Catapault in Shaler STEAM Competition

For the past 7 years, Shaler Area High School hosts a variety of STEAM challenges during a teacher in-service day. High School teams from across the area compete in problem solving, building, engineering, and design tasks throughout the day to accumulate points. This years events included, parachute creation, and accuracy, a self-portrait of an action pose, designing a helmet to limit concussions, and creating a machine that would sling paper footballs without human interaction!

Students were also tasks with a 'build challenge' to bring with them. Pine-Richland students Jack Duckworth, Tara Staresinic, Brayden Perry, Dante Pittorino, and Avyu Nagrath created a catapult to both shoot a basketball into a hoop at various distances while also able to convert into a machine that can bowl. Their teamwork was phenomenal as they collaborated to complete their contraption!
