Medieval Weekends: Trebuchet Engineering for Young Learners

Description
STEAM: Launch your child's interest in Science and Engineering to be more future-ready by learning historical siege engines. Recommended for parent-child pairs.

How about recreating a historical machine that originated from ancient China and medieval Europe in the form of a working display toy model. Build up your very own trebuchet with wood, cloth and nails, learning the mechanics of its counterweight method to be able to launch marbles in ridiculous ranges! Learn to implement the engineering mechanisms for the trebuchet! Set up a rigid structure to hold up the swinging lever, gauge the weight ratio of the counterweight, and estimate the optimal length of the runway!

Best for children aged 10 and above. Children aged 7 and above are welcomed with parent supervision. No prior experience required as basic woodworking skills will be taught.
