Leonardo da Vinci Catapult

Details
Based on Leonardo's historical Codex Atlanticus sketches in the 1480's, this working wood catapult flings a soft clay ball over 12 feet! Great for school projects, hobbyists, and those who like to fling things! Historically accurate, it is easy to assemble for ages 9 and over, and once finished will provide hours of educational fun in testing the distance of the clay balls (included) and other items you can find around the house (tin foil balls, cotton balls, styrofoam balls etc. ). All pieces pre-cut and precisely drilled, even glue is included. Great for enquiring minds and multigenerational projects. Can be built in about an hour or two.

      Comments about Leonardo da Vinci Catapult:

      WOW, too cool of a project. It is the perfect gift for a hands on kid. Constructing it was as much fun as launching with it. It is a terrific wooden structure that is usable to project ball well over 12 feet. Careful, a competition or challenge may present itself to see who can launch the object the furthest. Loads of fun.

        Great sturdy catapult. It took a little bit to build, but my 4 year old is even able to enjoy the end result.

          This catapult is great for children and adults who love to build things. It is a accurate replica of a classic design that can be built at home or in schools. Great for science projects and hobbies. Once it is built, use the catapult to sling items up to 12 feet!
