Product Details

A lot can be learned from building a trebuchet—especially da Vinci’s trebuchet! Leonardo da Vinci designed a trebuchet with the swing arm attached to a single pole, which was different from other trebuchets of the time. Create a functional recreation of this 15th century design based on da Vinci’s drawings. Explore concepts, such as projectile motion, mechanical advantage, velocity, acceleration due to gravity, moment of inertia and more. Includes precut wood pieces that are ready to assemble and pegged for extra strength. Clay balls can be hurled over 4 meters! 24½" H x 12½" L when assembled.
