Description

For the medieval catapult, stored tension equals the power of projectile motion – which now equals awesome learning power! Build and use this kit to demonstrate:

  • Force and motion.
  • Vectors.
  • Trajectory.
  • Potential and kinetic energy.
  • Simple machines.
  • Medieval history.

Plus, students can develop math, physics, and problem-solving skills by experimenting with the catapult to reach different distances with varying weights of ammunition (pieces of clay). Going back to the Dark Ages has never been so enlightening!

Requires white glue, sold separately.
