Basic training begins with an army-style warm-up, complete with PT exercises and drills. After an initial briefing on the ancient use and design of the “trebuchet” - one of the earliest weapons, teams are challenged to build their very own “missile-delivery system” in a very short time-frame.
Using the variety of materials provided but with only some rudimentary examples, teams quickly construct and test a functional trebuchet. At the same time, other team members experiment with and adapt a range of potential missiles - to test for distance and accuracy.
In the competitive climax, the completed trebuchets are lined up for an elimination “shoot-off” as each trebuchet is allowed several attempts to launch its newly designed missiles at a preset target. In the end there can be only one winner with the desired combination of power and accuracy!
