Da Vinci Trebuchet

A great kit for beginner to intermediate model makers, this kit will throw a soft clay ball (included) well over 6 metres! Great for STEM programs and a rainy day – but it can be enjoyed on sunny or cloudy days!

While Trebuchets were common siege engines in Medieval Times, Leonardo’s take on the most powerful weapon of the time was unique – his design used one main mast, different from all others before!

Based on his drawing from the Codex Atlanticus, da Vinci’s Trebuchet was a design likely made for the Duke of Milan in about 1482, to impress the Duke of his skills as a military engineer. While it is not known if it was ever used in battle, you can bring Leonardo’s trebuchet to life with this working model!

Age Rating: 14+ While the kit can be made by people younger than 14, it does launch a projectile, so is rated 14+. If used by people under 14, please make sure there is parental supervision for the launching.
