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.
