Students use math, science skills to build 'pumpkin chunkin' catapults

(WTVM) - On Friday, Nov. 21, several elementary school students at Fort Benning got the chance to apply all they've learned about math and science. 

Stowers Elementary School students designed Halloween pumpkin catapults. 

Volunteers with the Society of American Military Engineers helped the students apply trajectory and force-to-design concepts to build the catapults. 

Each grade designed and built a catapult to launch the retired Halloween pumpkins.
