So i need to launch a ball into a target using a personally created launcher using Autodesk and wanted to know the best design type and/or an idea (8th Grade Tech)

- 3 inch diameter ball

- weight of ball will be updated soon

- 25 feet distance

- has to be 1 foot by 1 foot or smaller

- only 2 feet tall when pulled down (max)

- the scoring system is setup like skiball, there are 3 circles that i need to land in, getting smaller as i go. Any help? i need to make it out of wood and cant use anything like motors or gas tanks. Old style catapult or trebuchet. I get to make it how i want to based on the top criteria. It could even be a slingshot. The scores are 100, 50, and 25. If i hit the edge of a circle and dont go in it is 25 points and i have 10 shots per round and 3 rounds. If possible i would like to score 750+ as a school record and have my average be 600+

Edit: I have 5 weeks to craft a CAD and cut it out and do tests. Thanks for reading
