Jamison is playing with LEDs, transistors, and his iPod. Here are some links we found useful.
I think it’s time for another trip to Fry’s and then start working our way through Make: Electronics.
This looks like fun.
Looks like Jamison and I are going to have more fun this summer building a larger trebuchet. A small FAKA looks interesting. ;-)
Jamison and his neighbor friend decided they wanted to make trebuchets for their fifth-grade classroom science project. What a great idea! That meant I would get to help.
After a bit of searching online, we found some plans for a simple, tabletop trebuchet on hilaroad.com/projects. The plans are perfect for a first build with limited equipment and skills. They are quite detailed and show almost everything you need to know.
A few helpful hints we learned the hard way:
Maybe one more thing: your current trebuchet is never big enough. We’re already looking forward to designing and building a larger trebuchet to launch dirt clods into the green space behind our backyard.
Yeah, dangerous to your time, as you spend too much time reading their blog.
Looks like Jamison and I will be building an electric motor for a science project.
