We are fascinated with the medieval devices shown in films like The Lord of the Rings and Night at the Museum. Now, use that interest to teach basic math, science, and problem-solving skills. With this pack, your child learns about catapults and trebuchets through hands-on activities that cover three areas:
- Science: Tension versus torsion, elasticity, gravity and levers, and force and motion
- Math: Metric conversion, calculating averages, and prediction
- Experiments: Mass versus distance, testing rubber bands, targeting, and more
He or she will discover the history of medieval siege machines as well as the concepts required to build and use them.
The regular pack includes a Trebuchet Kit, a Catapult Kit, mass plates, and the Siege Machines book, and the deluxe pack includes everything from the regular pack plus a Torsion Ballista Kit and a Torsion Catapult Kit.
Note: Most guide activities require additional items such as measurement and hand tools, sold separately.
