A trebuchet is a medieval siege weapon employed to either smash masonry walls or throw projectiles over them. In the Trebuchet Challenge!, teams are challenged to design and build this medieval weapon to protect their “cities” from the invasion of “enemies”.
Members must decide on the projectile mass, the launch angle and the counterweight mass to launch the perfect attach.
This activity encourages the group to achieve various objectives including:
Communication, trust, coordination on work processes, respect for individual’s capabilities, synergy, understanding the importance of quality to customers, change and strategies to cope them and also being aligned with a common mission and vision.
