Gravity + Tall Building + Pumpkins + Cheesy Acting = Great outreach activity. Wait, is that even dimensionally correct?

Heya folks, I just wanted to highlight one of our recent chapter activities: The 17th Annual Pumpkin Drop. Held at high noon on the Friday before Halloween, this event is visited by college students and local school children alike. Two of our majors dress up as Galileo and Aristotle and debate the speeds of falling bodies. Pumpkins are used for demonstration purposes, of course. It's a great way to get kids excited about physics and everyone always has a great time.
