here. The trebuchet could not be more than a meter when in the loaded position and the one on that site looked perfect. It also had the word "easy" in the title so I was sold!
It was pretty easy and Zach did it himself with help from us. As we were building I realized he would be graded on how far it went compared to others in his class. No biggie I thought, we had 20 pounds of counter weight. That is a lot! Right?
I couldn't be at the school for the launch so a friend took pictures for me. He did great!! 65 feet!! Not the best in the class, but very respectable and earned him an A.
That was his last project for the year (woo hoo!!). Now to get through Joey's damn state report...
