Print By Amy Cowen on April 4, 6: Fluor Corporation has announced the winners of ten thousand dollars in cash prizes to schools and organizations who took part in this year's Ball Launcher challenge.
Some of the students who entered the Fluor Challenge. What can you learn about projectile motion, energy, engineering design, and physics with ordinary materials like plastic cups, pencils, rulers, and tape?
Students who entered the Fluor Engineering Challenge can tell you that the answer is a great deal! Plus, you can have fun at the same time. Inspired by Fluor's annual company-wide employee engineering challenge, the student challenge features a student-friendly adaptation of one of the company's previous challenges.
The student challenge is different each year, and Science Buddies' senior staff scientists work to convert the adult challenge into something accessible and engaging for students and with materials that are readily available around the world.
Designed to inspire students to try engineering and to discover firsthand that engineering and the creative problem solving and design involved in brainstorming and testing a solution can be fun, the Challenge presents an engaging problem and asks students to come up with their best design using limited materials and a set of specified rules and constraints.
The annual Fluor Challenge aligns with Engineers Week, making the hands-on activity an inviting fit for teachers looking to celebrate E-Week in the classroom. In some areas, Fluor volunteers also visit local classrooms and programs to inspire students in their communities about engineering and the Fluor Challenge.

To enable solutions to be compared, students use a scoring system that takes into account the materials used and the effectiveness of the design. A leader board is posted at the end of the Challenge to recognize students whose solutions excelled in scoring. The Fluor Challenge celebrates students who achieved high scores, but the spirit of the Fluor Challenge is in encouraging students to try a hands-on engineering activity.
You can view the winners and top scores on the Fluor Challenge page. I never knew that you could build a simple catapult using everyday materials. Next time I see everyday items, I will think about how I can engineer the item to become something better.
Overall, this challenge let me bond with everyday items and engineering in a way that I have never seen before. A student who entered the Fluor Challenge. The Ball Launcher Challenge In previous years, students have built balloon-powered carsmarble sortersand terraced water flow systems.
The Fluor Challenge involved making a ball launcher and catcher. Whether students interpreted the design as a catapult system or as a model based on American footballthe objective was clear: There were limitations for materials and rules regarding the design and operation of the machines launcher and receiverbut as has been true with all previous Fluor Challenge activities, students proved to be up to the task!
I especially love the fact that the girls enjoy it too. As a matter of fact, it was the girl that made the foot shot!
These are fourth graders, and my plan is to implement this challenge into my curriculum yearly. There were more than 1, submissions for the Challenge from more than 3, students representing schools and organizations around the world.
Ball Launcher solutions were submitted from ten countries, and within the U. For a STEM challenge in its fourth year, the growth of the Fluor Challenge is a clear indication that educators welcome these kinds of hands-on engineering activities—and the chance to win funds for their schools and organizations!
I had dozens of students at any given time of the day in my hallway shooting off little aluminum balls every which way. Some students got creative with all aspects of their Ball Launchers.Read the news releases from Fluor, including company news, financial reports, and project awards.
