You have just graduated from the Police Academy. There has been a recent surge in the crime rate around PCCE. People are disgusted with the lack of security. In order to pacify the locals the Superintendent of Police has to choose some policemen from the freshly graduated batch to patrol the area.
But from the batch, the Superintendent will only choose the best to patrol this area. He therefore comes up with a test to choose the best policemen.
The policemen who pass this test will have to patrol the area affected. And so that the Superintendent knows that every part of the area has been checked, you have to Flag every dead-end you encounter while patrolling the area.

The Challenge: Build a catapult that can directly hit closest to a target with a rubber ball from distances of X,Y meters which uses only the allowed materials and meets all the rules.
The Contest: your team will design a catapult, and test it. On Launch Day, a target will be placed on ground at a distance of X,Y meters from your catapult. The winners will be the students who most consistently hit nearest the target. [Note: system may be changed for competition.]
There may be obstacles in other rounds.




  1. Allowed Materials: any materials except mouse or rat traps
  2. The base can have a maximum thickness of 2.5 cm. Maximum size of the catapult must be 30 cm x 30 cm x 30cm.
  3. Each teams should have 3 members.

  7. Catapults must be self-contained, i.e. not have any separate pieces. No part of the catapult may detach from the base/arm constructed device.
  8. No Sling shots! Your device must have a calibration component!
  9. The catapult must be able to project the projectile at a maximum distance of 300 cm.
  1. Safety Rules:

  2. Catapults may only be fired when given the "fire" command. Under no circumstances are catapults to be fired at another person! (Total disqualification)
  3. No part of the catapult may detach from the constructed device.
