Abstract

We recently held a Science Summer Camp for middle school students, designed to infuse young

people with increased excitement for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) subjects.

Our efforts, which received nationally-syndicated news coverage,1 included the invention of a versatile

water balloon launcher. This document contains: (1) detailed construction schematics and user

operation guidelines for our balloon launcher; (2) data and instructions for reproducibly filling water

balloons to specific volumes and weights, within

used by students during the summer camp.
