Catapults and Castles – Break the Battlements! SSC Abingdon
Since ancient times, the catapult has been a masterful piece of technology used by armies to smash the walls of castles and fortresses. From trebuchets to ballistas and mangonels, these powerful siege engines were craftily engineered to fire objects such as rocks and burning tar balls a very long way. Now it’s the turn of your young engineers to build and test their own sling-shot machines before working in teams to try and overcome the opponents battlements.
