Description

Take your students on a journey through medieval times. The EZ Trebuchet is a quick, easy build – no gluing and no tools required. The trebuchet is counterbalanced by small washers and uses a lightweight bead on a string as the projectile. Students can experiment with various counterweight masses, different lengths of strings on the projectile, and beads with different masses as the projectile.
