Masters of the catapult: Attack!
Become a modern-day knight. This workshop gives youths the opportunity to learn about different types of simple machines (lever, winch, gear, inclined plane, etc.,) and the concepts of potential and kinetic energy. Their knowledge will be tested over two challenges: aiming for the centre of the target using a crossbow and destroying castles with a ballista and catapult trigger. Now it’s your turn!
