This construction kit challenges you to flex your mechanical engineering skills and build an exciting, fully-functional catapult using over 100 construction pieces! Explore the technology behind some of the most influential inventions of our culture's Age of Innovation!  Inspired by ancient Greek and Roman models of design, this modern catapult has a ratcheting winch that can control the distance projectiles are thrown. Crank the winch to its maximum tension, and you can hurl balls over 10 feet!  Building the catapult teaches young engineers to build self-reliance and to understand mechanical functioning as they see in real-time how components such as levers and gears work together to allow machines to perform and improve upon human functions such as, in this case, throwing.  Once they've completed the catapult, have kids use their imaginations to create their own games.  How much tension does it take to hurl the ball 5, 7, or 10 feet?  Can you generate more vertical trajectories by angling the catapult upward?  Kids can even use 2 catapults and homemade targets for a medeival contest of speed and physics intuition!

HEXBUG® believes in using the fun of robotic toys to teach kids important STEM principles through hands on learning.The VEX® Robotics Catapult™ feature two alternate builds for more robotic fun! All Catapult's™ construction pieces are compatible with educational VEX® IQ pieces to create your own custom VEX® robot and explore unlimited possibilities.  Two balls included.
