Punkin Chunkin: Troy High

THURS. 10/18 – ASME officers visited Troy High School as part of an ongoing outreach program to help students build trebuchets for the 2017 Punkin Chunkin competition. Mr. Baitinger’s Principles of Engineering class has two teams: one building an onager catapult and the other a trebuchet. Unfortunately, liability concerns prevents these teams from competing this year, but ASME hopes to bring teams from Troy High to Punkin Chunkin in future years.

One team drills a hole to insert a metal rod for the arm to pivot around.
