Projectiles, Part 2 - Bigger and Bigger




One of the holiday week projects was a trebuchet kit, which was quite popular, launching golf-ball sized elements.

Next, of course, everyone decided that bigger would be better, and things got a little out of hand -some lumber assembly, hardening a concrete counterweight and making a sling.


The big trebuchet fired soccer balls and water balloons.



And brave souls tried to catch them.
