Harness the power of projectiles. Learn an array of carpentry skills as you build a working wooden catapult. Use hand and power tools to assemble the frame and throwing arm. Explore the dynamics of potential energy, testing and fine-tuning your device to propel objects to great heights, across long distances or with amazing accuracy. Build targets and compete in an end-of-session launch off. Enter your catapult in the Tournament of Launchers, then take home your fantastic flinger.
