Mini-Catapult Workshop

When: Wed., Dec. 29, 1-4 p.m. 2010

Ever since the ancient Greeks first started terrorizing their enemies with the machine they called a katapultos, people have found ample use for contraptions designed to fling heavy things far away. Manitou Springs' Great Fruitcake Toss isn't until Jan. 8, but kids can get in early on the sucrose-tastic action by building their own marshmallow launchers with Cool Science from 1 to 4 p.m. today at the Business of Art Center (513 Manitou Ave., Manitou Springs,, or from 4 to 6, Jan. 5 at the Manitou Springs Public Library (701 Manitou Ave.). If flinging paint is more their speed, they can join Concrete Couch between 2 and 4 on Jan. 8, again at the BAC. For more information, visit Or, for vicarious participation, consider donating to Cool Science through the Indy's Give! Campaign ( — Claire Swinford
