We’re working on an exciting new project at MAKESHOP: A Catapult!
Normally we don’t make war machines, but this one has been repurposed for FUN. Our design is based on the trebuchet, a sling-based counterweight-powered type of catapult originally invented in the 11th century. We’re building this crazy thing to throw the first pitch for the Pirates game on September 1st! Check out the Rookie of the Gear programming and come out and help!
Recently, we’ve constructed the catapult part! Here it is in action!
