Small and Easy But Powerful Catapult

Introduction: Small and Easy But Powerful Catapult

A catapult made out of a paper binder and rubberband. Great for launching things during class. I got this off of Youtube.

Step 1: Make It

Wrap rubberband around the binder.

Step 2: How to Shoot

Hold onto one side of binder. Pull back the other. Put ammo on the one side being pulled back. Let go of one that is pulled back

    You could just use the binder clip but it wouldn't be as powerful.

    it'll be much stronger if you wrap the rubber band tightly around the silver part of clipper
