The goal of performing this project was to encompass learning objectives acquired throughout the duration of this course. We wanted to use a motor to pull back the arm of a catapult and have a solenoid be the release mechanism. The project was successful. When we pressed the appropriate key, the motor would pull back the arm and the solenoid would retract.
