How far can a pumpkin fly? The simple answer is: It depends on the propellant. Each November, science and gourd enthusiast gather together at the University of Arizona to determine just how far a pumpkin can fly when launched properly.
Visit Tucson November 1 for the opportunity to see academia brought to life at the Tucson Pumpkin Toss. Builders pondered aerodynamics, physics and ancient building techniques to create custom catapults that will chuck pumpkins a mighty distance. Tour the trebuchets, speak with builders on their designs and help the judges pick the perfect pumpkin chucking machine.
