About This Product

The da Vinci Catapult miniature is a working re-creation of his 15th Century design. Leonardo designed a wide range of catapults, some functional, some not so much.

This catapult re-creates one of Leonardo’s more interesting designs that uses the power of bent wood to launch projectiles.

- Ages 9+
- Constructed size: 18 x 6 x 9cm
- Full instructions provided
- Suitable for beginners

Tip: We recommend dry-fitting your pieces together, and then gluing as necessary once you are confident your piece placement is correct!

If used by people under 14, please make sure there is parental supervision for the launching.

This catapult is one of da Vinci’s redesigns from the medieval catapults of 400 or so years earlier.

While the Medieval catapult we made uses the force of twisted rope, this uses the tension stored in bent wood to hurl objects – usually over 15 feet. With no modifications you can experiment with flinging grapes, and those fun mini marshmallows too! A great way to introduce graphing for kids!
