Keva Trebuchet Set
Often seen in movies and books from medieval times, trebuchets are a type of catapult that use the principles of gravity to fling objects over great distances, often used in times of war. Build your own working wooden trebuchet with the Keva Trebuchet Set from Mindware! Kids will enjoy first building this hurling machine and then using it to see what objects will travel farther. Hone your accuracy, by adjusting the counterweight and see if you can sling the two included balls into predetermined targets. Prepare your living room for battle and see if a paperclip flies farther than a potato chip!
