Product Description

Catapults have traditionally been powered by using the energy in twisted rope - as in ancient Greek and Medieval Times - or in bent wood - as Leonardo da Vinci designed in his Renaissance era catapult. Pathfinders has now designed the very first hydraulic catapult - a Hydrapult - using the energy of moving fluid to hurl items.

Learn about levers and simple machines, trajectories, how projectiles fly, and test theories about release angles and weight of projectiles - all with a fun and engaging DIY kit!

Complete with educational material and target making instructions!

Shoot at a target, go for distance, or knock down small block walls - the Hydrapult is an exciting science kit to inspire budding engineers!

  • Pre-cut pieces and everything needed to make an amazing working model.
  • Easy-to-make.
  • Sustainably sourced wood.
  • Suitable for ages 8+.
  • Supports STEM curriculum.
