Prepare to hurl projectiles through the air! But don’t puke because projectile vomiting is kind of gross. The VEX Robotics Catapult modernizes traditional Greek and Roman catapult designs in an exciting new way. Fill the bucket with ammo and watch it soar by cranking the machine’s ratcheting winch. Test how far you can launch a variety of objects like cotton balls, cereal, and beads, there’s always inventive projectiles laying around the house (with permission from Mom or Dad because we don’t want anyone to get grounded from playing with this product). Record your findings and help your budding engineer draw scientific conclusions about mass and density.
Built from over 100 VEX pieces, this snap-together kit features a completely tool-less assembly. No mess and no hassle. Just try not to lose any of the pieces, okay? It’s light and portable so you can pick it up and change locations to play in a moment’s notice. Fire away, make the garden bed your newest battleground, or take it inside to set up an array of pots for target practice. With a little imagination, the possibilities are endless! The VEX Robotics Catapult is $19.99 on hexbug.com.
