The Pumpkin launch is another free super fun event that will take place on Saturday, November 4th  2017. I went to this event twice and we all love it. Students build giant trebuchets and then compete to see who can launch a pumpkin at the target. It sounds silly, but it is actually fun to watch. I don’t know which activities they will have this year, but in the past they had lots of fun stations where kids could build their own marshmallow catapults, fire balls with rubber bands, learn about density, and much more. They also had a medieval booth that was really fun. So I am going again!
