Elenco EDU-61009 Leonardo Da Vinci Catapult Kit
Leonardo Da Vinci improved upon the already-established catapult design when he introduced his own version to the age-old military launching device. The plans for the new catapult employed a hand-crank that caused tension on the throw arm before releasing a projectile. His unique spring design produced a large amount of energy in order to propel stone projectiles or incendiary materials over great distances.
The invention that inspired this snap-together replica is taken from the pages of Da Vinci's priceless and awe-inspiring notebooks. This model is made of plastic, snaps together and requires no special tools. The manual is very educational and teachs how this invention has evolved into what it is today.
For ages 8 and up.
