Cubicle Warfare (How to build a trebuchet)

trebuchet

Proposal:

We are in a high school engineering program and we propose to build the best trebuchet with a pivot point under four feet the world has already seen. We will work on this project for about a month. We will build, test, evaluate, refine and continue to make it better.
History:

The trebuchet dates back to the middle ages where they were used as a siege weapon. On average these machines could fling material of 350 pounds onto an enemy territory. Unlike now, the humans pulled ropes instead of having a counter weight. Today they are used mostly for recreation and education.
