Pumpkin Drop to challenge students October 18

October 18th will be the day that students from dozens of West Virginia schools will get together for the 14th annual Capital City Pumpkin Drop in Charleston. Students will apply their best science and math skills to come up with containers that will protect a pumpkin when it's dropped from a designated height at Appalachian Power Park. Faculty and staff from Bridgemont Community and Technical College will judge, with the goal being to get kids interested in science, technology, engineering and math, and to spawn creativity.
