Battle of the Robots

Build a fantastic pellet-shooting junk robot whilst practising working with averages, decimals and data.  Follow the instructions on the sheets below to build your own robot.  There are three different designs for you to follow in order to launch your pellets - The Terrible Twanger, The Catastrophic Catapult, The Ballistic Blowpipe.  Don't forget to collect your data and record carefully in a data table.  Can you calculate the mean, median, mode and range for your set of data?


Don't forget to send in photographs of you robots.
