Technology & Design Catapult Challenge
This image shows a catapult similar to those used by the Romans attacking castles.
We have included some pics of our pencil version. It was very fiddly and you might want help when building it.
A mini version built with bamboo canes would be easier.
If you google mini pioneering & mini catapults there are lots of ideas.
Your challenge is:
Remember this is for engineering fun; never aim a catapult at a person, no-one wants to lose an eye!
Follow the youtube link and you will find lots of ideas – some simpler than others BUT which one is the best?
Don’t be put off by hot glue guns – what can you use/do instead?
