DESCRIPTION

Medieval Catapult Kit allows you to build the device that has intrigued people for centuries. It converts the stored potential energy in a twisted rope into the kinetic energy of a projectile. Now kids can build, operate and refine their own wooden catapult with this kit while experimenting with and understanding energy transfer principles.

This catapult kit contains pieces machined from carefully chosen lumber with precisely drilled holes for easy assembly. Hurl clay projectiles up to 15 feet! Detailed, clearly illustrated assembly instructions guide the builder through each step of constructing and using their catapult kit.

The completed model measures 10" (25 cm) x 6" (15 cm) x 5" (13 cm). Glue is included. Provide supervision for children under 12.
