So... How does it work?

Basically: Ancient catapult users would wind up rope, plant fibers, animal hair, or other stretchy material, and make a sort of giant slingshot out of it.

By pulling back on it, the catapult STORES ENERGY. When the catapult is RELEASED, so is the ENERGY... into the OBJECT that is thrown.

Interesting and fun --- unless they are aiming at YOU.


Here's a fun link* that shows you how to make your own popsicle stick catapult.
