Build your own fully working catapult and get ready for a Roman style battle!
Originally developed by the Greeks over 2000 years ago, but widely used by the Roman armies as they conquered Europe, this is the perfect weapon for battles and sieges. It is also an amazing machine with simple but effective use of levers and tension.
The kit comes with everything you need to create your own version, with small clay balls to use as weapons – we have also found that Brussels Sprouts work particularly well with this one! With clear instructions and no difficult cutting to do, become an engineer and see how far you can make your projectiles reach.
Please note – this product is marked 14+ as it is a fully working design – this means that some supervision is required if younger children are making it. However, we would recommend that 8+ is the building age.
- It really works!
- They can alter the tensions to see the impact
- They can learn all about Roman culture at the same time
