Pioneering – Catapults and Ballistas

   |   By

This evening, the Explorers practised their pioneering skills to build devices capable of projecting bean bags as far as possible. Each group designed and built their device with varying levels of success!

Well done to the winning group who managed to fire the entire length of the main hall!
