The Great Pumpkin Smash
From the Series Makers Make It Work
For Luke, autumn in Florida feels weird. There are no changing leaves, no cider, and worst of all, no pumpkin chucking! But maybe he can engineer a way to bring pumpkin spice to the south. Tying into the popular Makers Movement, Makers Make It Work is a series of fun easy-to-read stories that focus on problem-solving and hands-on action. This charming story explores the Makers theme of Engineering and includes explanatory sidebars and a catapult activity for young makers to try themselves!
