Provide a fun, exciting hands-on environment for studying energy conversion, levers, trajectories, ratios, rotational motion, inertia, forces, and more! Investigate how projectile range alters by changing variables such as weight, weight position, sling length, pivot point, and projectile mass. Fun and economical: Don't order just one! Includes materials for constructing and using 1 trebuchet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not terrible, but not great either. The models are very inexpensive, and are die cut on a single sheet of thin wood. The instructions are fairly simple, but I would use hot glue to hold the main structure together singe wood glue doesn't hold up to the twisting the machine does when in use. The overall design in not very stable, which means getting any data about changes in the placement of the axle or weight is difficult at best. It is good for a first concept about potential vs. kinetic energy, but there are too many structural issues to make them too much of a use after that.
