According to Wikipedia, catapults were used throughout the Middle Ages but soon became ineffective due to improved defense techniques. Leonardo Da Vinci improved upon the earlier designs to produce his own version.

This version was never built during his lifetime, but hey have a go at it now! Not only can you have fun but learn some mechanics on the side.

It is supposed to be able to shoot the included clay balls up to 15 feet away! Apart from that, it is a great educational tool for school children. Learning while having fun is the best way to remember and understand difficult concepts.
