Since city ordinances (among other things) won't allow us to build a full-scale Medieval catapult, we had to scale it down a bit. Despite the setbacks, we've come up with a pretty sweet, indoor-safe Desktop Catapult. And the best part is that everything you're going to need can be found right in your home. The Desktop Catapult makes for a fun way to explore the properties of physics and motion.
- Staple remover
- Solid, flat base (we found that a 3-ring binder works great)
- Plastic spoon
- Hot glue gun or tape
- Catapult-able objects
