Build Your Own Catapult

Your Mission: Turn the bits in the image below:

Components used to craft your own catapult at Oddyssea in Half Moon Bay

Into this fully functioning catapult.
Finished catapult - the kind you can create at Oddyssea in Half Moon Bay

Yes, it’s real. Yes, it shoots clay projectiles. No, we’re not crazy. Yes, you can do this through mid-June 2015. Yes, we can help you build it. No, you can’t shoot (your spouse, sibling, neighbor, cat, etc.) Though we think aiming at rogue mice might be OK. (It’s a clay projectile, it won’t even hurt a mouse.)

What you definitely CAN do is build a castle from blocks, cardboard, or cans, and use your catapult to knock them all down. Make it a game, score 1 point for each can knocked down, go for 3 rounds, and see who has the highest score!

The only thing required to successfully complete this mission is about 30 minutes time, a little patience, the ability to read English, French, or German, and the ability to follow directions. We provide everything else including a little coaching 😉
