BANGOR – Can pumpkins fly? Not normally, but this weekend in Bangor, they will!
The Challenger Learning Center of Maine is hosting a pumpkin catapult fundraiser on Saturday.
Participants could sign up for a time slot for ten dollars, with funds going to help support the center.
To keep the event in line with COVID-19 precautions, it’ll be drive-through style.
“So when they drive up, they’ll get a pumpkin to decorate. Then the next stop they drive up to, they’ll get to actually load it, and step back and watch the pumpkin fly! And then, the last part is we have these great take-home bags,” said Kirsten Hibbard, executive director at the Challenger Learning Center.
The bags include a make-your-own catapult kit, some NASA goodies and other science-themed fun things.
Pre-registration is required.
