October 25, 2012 – A team of students from Brewster High School took first place at Dutchess Community College’s 14th Annual Punkin’ Chunkin’ competition held Oct. 21 at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds. Brewster was the only school to land a direct hit on its target.
Teams from Arlington High School, Dutchess County BOCES and Dutchess Community College also participated.
Punkin’ Chunkin’ gives students in physics, engineering and technology classes and clubs the opportunity to design, build and operate a sophisticated mechanical device to hurl pumpkins at a target.
Punkin’ Chunkin’ is coordinated by Mark Courtney, DCC Associate Professor and head of the Engineering, Architecture and Computer Technologies department.
