It looks like the Dallas Personal Robotics Group (DPRG) would make a great team for our MAKEcation trebuchet challenge. Watch the video as a homegrown month-old squash gets squashed! Who said the DPRG only made robots?

Our final main event for MAKEcation 2009 is our “Family Challenge,” as in the Hatfields vs. the McCoys, the Lancasters vs. the Yorks, the Macs vs. the PCs. Build a backyard trebuchet! The family that builds our favorite, and sends us the documentation, will get a $100 gift certificate from the Maker Shed. Five runners up will get a Maker’s Notebook and their choice of The Best of MAKE or The Best of Instructables.
