Trebuchet

The Problem Solving Company challenge students to build a working Trebuchet, or catapult.

Teams are provided with some simple equipment and asked to create a contraption that can not only fire different ammunition but to be able to fulfill different challenges that will involve having a certain amount of control of their catapult. The more control the better, as some  of our outdoor sessions cumulate in the different groups,  whilst remaining in their bases, trying to secure a direct shot on their competitors using water bombs.

Our Trebuchet activity can be part of a stand alone session or can be integrated with other activities to create a bespoke day
