The Physics of Fling!

Demonstrate the power of physics using the Institute’s three-ton Trebuchet. Capable of launching a large pumpkin the length of a football field or more, Cranbrook’s trebuchet is an awesome tool to demonstrate the principle of conservation of energy, the mathematical nature of projectile motion and the basic laws of kinematics in engaging and inspiring ways that are certain to thrill and inspire. This amazing program is offered in three ways: two hours at your school; two hours at the Institute of Science; or one hour at your school and one hour at the Institute (on separate days).
