KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- The Physics Club at CMU held their 8th annual Pumpkin Drop. The physics students dropped eighteen pumpkins from the rooftop of the Tomlinson Library.
Spectators counted down as the pumpkins fell three stories to become a pile of seeds and guts.
"Today the Physics Club is putting on their 8th annual Pumpkin Drop and we always have the Little Mavs and the Little Lambs Daycare come out and watch. We also have it open to anyone on campus and try and advertise throughout the community. So it's a community wide event that we hold every year," explained Jaimie Stephens, President of the Society of Physics Club at CMU.
The Physics Club took the opportunity to educate spectators through a demonstration of imploding an old oil barrel using steam.
The Pumpkin Drop was one of many events celebrating Halloween on CMU's campus bringing students and community members together.
