Ambler Farm Pumpkin Warriors
Wednesday, Nov. 20, 7 – 8 p.m.
Ambler Farm has entered a team in the “Punkin Chunkin” World Championships. The 10 students are known as the ”Ambler Farm Pumpkin Warriors” and have traveled to Delaware to compete in the great pumpkin throwing contest that is aired on Thanksgiving night. The youth team is competing in the 17 and under trebuchet category. A trebuchet is a version of the catapult that uses a counterweight to propel the arm. The team has been working on the trebuchet for 2 years and finally has the chance to compete as last year’s trip was cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy. Come learn about their machine, the competition and the results of this amazing trip. Grades 1 and up with a caregiver. Sponsored by Ambler Farm.
