miniTrebModel.jpgThe folks in the Maker Shed have put together a special bundle for our Family Challenge. The MAKEcation Trebuchet (Flingin’ Things) Bundle contains Bill Gurstelle’s book, The Art of the Catapult, our Mini trebuchet kit, and a Maker’s Notebook. Read up on the history of this ancient weapon of war, build a lovely 4″ x 9″ x 14″ (tall) wooden desktop model, and then use the Maker’s Notebook to scale up your plans for your backyard version. The bundle is available for $40 ($39.97), deeply discounted from buying these items separately.
