Pumpkin Launch

This FREE field trip could not have come at a better time!  A local university was holding their annual pumpkin launch while we were studying castles and medieval weapons ( trebuchets!)  There were a ton of hands on stations for us to try out various catapults, make our own catapults, and watch a competition of larger scale catapults as they launched pumpkins towards targets, aiming for the centers.  It was a GREAT experience!
