Build & Test a Catapult

How far can a DIY Catapult shoot?

The minizens at the Contraption Station always find themselves needing to deliver things to different mission stations around Curious City. One of the minizens is suggesting they build a contraption to make their deliveries easier. Instead of making the deliveries by going to the different mission stations, he thinks they can build a catapult to hurl packages to the other mission stations. The other minizens think this is a silly idea, but they are curious to find out if it can work.

Build your own catapult and see how far it can launch things. Your task is to test it with different payloads and launch angles, to see if catapulting things are a good idea for delivering things.
