Can you make a Lego Catapult?

Instructions -

  • The base is wide and has extra bricks on the sides to stop it falling over.
  • The arc brick above the catapult arm helps to keep the arm in place.
  • Extra bricks around the LEGO girl stop her from slipping.
  • Use a loom band or elastic band to stop the arm of the catapult flying off and give it an extra springy boost.


How could you improve your design?


Extension Ideas

Can you measure how far different sized loads travel?

What happens if you use a longer or shorter arm?

Have fun and remember to upload your photos to your Class Dojo!
