The Trebuchet Design Project is a 200-page document that steps students through the parts, assemblies, and drawings used to construct a trebuchet. Utilizing SolidWorks SimulationXpress, students analyze structural members to determine material and thickness. Mathematics and physics competency-based exercises explore algebra, geometry, weight, and gravity. An optional hands-on construction with models is provided by Gears Educational Systems, LLC.
