Local kids take shot at being engineer for a day

Children got to be engineers for a day on Saturday. Families were invited to the Museum of Idaho to have their kids be a part of Flour Idaho Engineering Day.

The kindergarteners torough sixth graders got to create their own catapults and put them to the test. They used spoons, tongue depressors, rubber band, and tape to craft the perfect shooting catapult. There were contests and prizes were awarded for the best designs.

“I like building stuff and I like using my imagination,” 8-year-old Karlie Hatler said.
