Halloween? Time for a fling

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Jared Schiff, President of the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) Engineering Club on campus, and Justin Larson, Vice-President of the ASME Club, were telling students about the club’s second annual Pumpkin launch.

Larson said, “This Saturday the Engineering Club will be hosting a pumpkin flinging event.  We’ve constructed a 15 foot tall replica of a medieval style trebuchet, a siege engine Bring your own pumpkin and launch it for $1, or come to the event and launch one of ours for $3.00!” 

Club President Schiff added: “This is a great way to apply physics, engineering, and mathematics to a real world project.  Engineering and fun- why not?”
