Last week I wrote about a maker-built trebuchet that was going to toss out the first pitch at a Pittsburgh Pirates game this Sunday. The trebuchet made its debut at the Pittsburgh Mini Maker Faire this past month. The big day came and it pitched a strike!

Congratulations to MAKESHOP and the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh for bringing this project to life.
