Pumpkin Chunkin - Middle School

Is it a bird? A plane?...No it is a PUMPKIN!!!! Time to put those leftover fall decorations to a good use as we learn to build and then construct a catapult or trebuchet to see who can launch the pumpkin either the farthest, the most accurately, or the most creatively. BEACON House, Inc., A STEAM Education nonprofit invites you to investigate the history behind these devices as well as the science and mathematics needed to increase your launch distance and control your pumpkin projectile to hit the target! Join us for a smashing good time of engineering using these medieval devices!
