catapult 600 This weekend: Catapult a pumpkin at NYSCI

Our friends at the New York Hall of Science are going to be launching pumpkins this weekend with their in-house trebuchet “Chuck”:

See NYSCI’s 20-foot-tall outdoor catapult in action! Learn about the history and science of catapults, and then watch it hurl pumpkins across the field. The demonstration will show how adjustments on the catapult affect the distance traveled and/or height of the projectile.
