Over the course of the day you will get an insight into a range of trades based skills and professions as you work as a member of a team working with a set of plans to construct a ‘Trebuchet’; a type of catapult.  At the end of the construction you will compete with other teams to see who can achieve the longest distance and highest throw.  Search for ‘Trebuchet’ to see examples of what you could be working on …. Note … we won’t be flinging cars :)
