Who knew that the trebuchet, one of the most elegant of all medieval weapons ever invented, could be improved! By redirecting the pulling force of the counterweight with a pulley, the system is able to transfer much more energy to the projectile than the standard trebuchet. In fact, this system, with only half the throwing arm of our standard trebuchet (GP00009), is able to throw just as far, if not farther. The included guide provides clear assembly instructions with pictures. It also contains pedagogy for exploring concepts of energy transfer using the scientific method.
