While I was in high school I have constructed a number of catapults for the Science Olympiad team. I generally liked more to design them than to actually build/use them. Nonetheless, by the end of my senior year I have constructed over 15 separate devices.
Here are blueprints for some of those catapults. Make sure to read the attached readme's before using for your purposes.
