Building a trebuchet with the  dit engineering society

Last year I got together with DIT’s engineering society to lend a hand in building a trebuchet. Long hours and determination brought this project to its final completion. I was part of a team of around 20 or so people all engineering students from different years and different backgrounds. When the project was complete we successfully test fired it in front of a journalist from RTÉ radio.

The following pictures are the assemble of the rig.
