Battle Craft

Grades 8 – 12 (Age 13 - 18)

Welcome aboard, Creya’tors and Curious MeerKats! The Summer of Discovery Camps are your passport to set sail on a voyage of imagination, creativity, and hands-on learning, all at the fascinating and innovative environs of T-Works! 

Battle Craft Workshop is a camp for inquisitive and adventurous teens from Grades 8 – 12 (Ages 14 – 18) that sets you on an epic journey through history and technology. This immersive experience combines the art of ancient warfare with modern 3D design techniques, enabling participants to explore, design, and build innovative war machines. From the legendary Archimedes Claw to powerful siege towers and battering rams, students will unlock the secrets of historical siege machinery and bring them to life through 3D printing.

Camp Activities

Archimedes Claw

Campers dive into ancient Greek engineering with the Archimedes Claw project, where they design a 3D model of this legendary defensive weapon, learning about leverage and the mechanics of lifting and toppling invading ships.


Harnessing the power of torsion to launch projectiles over great distances, campers work on a 3D-designed catapult, understanding the physics behind energy transfer and projectile motion in mediaeval siege warfare.

Siege Tower

Campers create a towering example of ancient military ingenuity with the Siege Tower project, focusing on structural stability and the strategic use of height and mobility in overcoming fortress defences.

Battering Ram

Design a formidable battering ram, delving into the principles of momentum and force distribution, and exploring how ancient engineers breached fortifications with this powerful siege weapon.

War Machine

Campers will innovate with a dual-purpose war machine that can both attack and defend, combining elements of design, engineering, and strategic thinking to develop a multifunctional 3D model that embodies the principles of ancient siege machinery and modern defence tactics.
