Chuck your pumpkin at Discovery Center


Those looking to make a quick and entertaining disposal of their pumpkins this weekend took advantage of a fun and educational opportunity at the Discovery Center in Rockford.

The center's catapult made its annual appearance in the parking lot to launch the gourds high in the area before meeting a squishy demise.

Organizers say the event teaches kids about trajectory and force. Kids were able to make miniature catapults and learn how to lob.
