Catapult Kit

Kids can build their own authentic catapult with planks, a little glue and the help of easy, step-by-step instructions. Then let the fun begin! What shoots farther, a marshmallow or a piece of macaroni? How does the object’s course change when you pull the arm back to different points? If you make the flight deck higher, how does it affect the hurl? Includes all parts necessary for construction and even a target mat to test your catapult. Recommended for ages 7 and up.
