Trebuchet Camp

Trebuchet Camp will provide a fun, exciting, and hands-on approach to studying energy conversion, levers, trajectories, ratios, rotational motion, inertia, forces, and more! Campers will also learn the history of trebuchets, from the Ancient world to Medieval times. Investigate how projectile range alters by changing variables such as weight, weight position, sling length, pivot point, and projectile mass. Each Camper will build a model trebuchet as well as construct a larger scale model.
