Product Description

Catapults have traditionally been powered by using the energy in twisted rope - as in ancient Greek and Medieval Times - or in bent wood - as Leonardo da Vinci designed in his Renaissance era catapult.
Pathfinders has now designed the very first hydraulic catapult - a Hydrapult! - using the energy of moving fluid to hurl items.
Learn about levers and simple machines, trajectories, how projectiles fly, and test theories about release angles and weight of projectiles - all with a fun and engaging DIY kit! Complete with educational material and target making instructions! Shoot at a target, go for distance, or knock down small block walls - the Hydrapult is an exciting science kit to inspire budding engineers! Made of study die-cut plywood with an MDF base.
Easy-to-make in about an hour Suitable for ages 8+.
Ideal for the STEM programme
