Thames & Kosmos Catapults & Crossbows Science Kit


Thames & Kosmos 665107 - The 32-page, full-color manual has illustrated step-by-step instructions. Ages 8+, 32 page full color manual, 10 experiments. A catapult is another medieval ballistic device that uses mechanical rubber bands and counterweights to fling projectiles into the air. Build ten sleek working models of catapults, crossbows and trebuchets.

The projectile, called the bolt, has a safe foam tip and a special cross-section that prevents other projectiles from being launched. When the bolt is loaded into the crossbow, a rubber band is pulled backward and energy is stored in the stretched rubber band. The projectile has a safe foam tip. Learn physics lessons in force, motion, energy, and projectiles.

Thames & Kosmos Catapults & Crossbows Science Kit - Build and experiment with five different types of crossbows. These classic siege weapons from the middle ages also happen to be great tools for teaching physics, including lessons in force, energy, motion, and projectiles. It's time to get medieval on physics! Build ten sleek and updated models of catapults and crossbows.

A crossbow is a medieval type of weapon based on a bow and arrow, in which the bow is mounted horizontally on a stock. A trigger releases the bolt and the rubber band launches it through the air toward its target. Build and experiment with five different types of crossbows.
