Science and Math Skills
Pumpkin tossing has been around since the 1980s, today CMS AIG students got to experience this fun event. Students worked in teams to design and build their very own pumpkin launcher. After completing their design, they competed to see which group had developed the best launcher. This is just one example of how our students are applying their science and math skills here at CMS.
