The Science of Catapults

For this year’s science week video, we focus on the fundamentals of catapult building. The catapults used in this video are based on the oldest models recorded in history known as traction trebuchets. For the science aspect of this video, our focal point is the types of energy required for this contraption to function such as kinetic and potential energy. This video teaches the basics about the different types of energy in an interesting real-world application.
