COSI: Catapults & Trebuchets

Orange Branch

Teen Program

Bring force and motion into the library in this surprising physics lab modeled around these medieval siege contraptions. Using the engineering process, you’ll design, build, test, and redesign your own catapults and trebuchets from recycled materials. Test for distance or accuracy as your creativity comes to life in a totally open engineering exploration! Can you construct functioning battle weaponry? Discover how physics is at play even in the most unlikely of circumstances.
