Product Description

  • Kit includes a model torsion catapult and a model torsion ballista that provide students in grades 6-12 hands-on activities that demonstrate the scientific concepts of force, tension, torque, simple machines, and Newton's laws of motion
  • Includes laser-cut basswood parts for assembling the model catapult and the model ballista using glue and screws
  • Includes five Styrofoam balls for launching in projectile motion, trajectory, and potential and kinetic energy experiments
  • Reinforces technology, engineering, and math concepts as students build and experiment with model medieval machines
  • Finished catapult measures approximately 2-1/2 x 2 x 4-1/2 inches while the ballista measures approximately 3-1/8 x 7 x 6 inches (H x W x D)
Additional Information

The Pitsco 38330 Torsion Catapult, Ballista, and Ball Kit includes a model torsion catapult and a model torsion ballista to provide students in grades 6-12 hands-on activities that demonstrate the scientific concepts of force, tension, torque, simple machines, and Newton's laws of motion, and it includes five Styrofoam balls to launch from the ballista. The kit includes laser-cut basswood parts for assembling both the model catapult and the model ballista using glue and screws. The catapult kit includes laser-cut basswood parts, braided nylon twine, screws, a paper clip, and instructions. The ballista kit includes laser-cut basswood parts, braided nylon twine, screws, a paper clip, two 3/4-inch Styrofoam balls, and instructions. The 38182 Torsion Ballista Ball Kit provides three additional 3/4-inch diameter balls for launching with the ballista. The catapult and ballista launch the balls and other small projectiles for experiments projectile motion, trajectory, and potential and kinetic energy. The kit reinforces technology, engineering, and math concepts as students build and experiment with a model catapult and a model ballista. The finished catapult measures approximately 2-1/4 x 2 x 4-1/2 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) The finished ballista measures approximately 3-1/8 x 7 x 6 inches (H x W x D). A catapult or ballista kit is typically used in an educational setting to demonstrate physics and simple machines.

Construction requires a screwdriver, white glue, a ruler, and scissors (all sold separately). Launching requires safety goggles (sold separately).

Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom and homeschool-based projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.

Pitsco Education develops K-12 science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum, educational kits, and classroom tools. The company, founded in 1971, is headquartered in Pittsburg, KS.
