Engineering Department Project: Building a Trebuchet

Dr. Meyers said, "A trebuchet works by using the energy of a raised counterweight (modeling clay) to throw a (Ping-Pong ball) projectile. A long beam is attached to an axle. At the short end of the beam is attached the counter weight. The long end of the beam is pulled down, raising the counterweight. ". Photo submitted by Dr. Mike Meyers.
