(AURORA, Colo., October 4, 2004) Brittney Johnson, 11 and her buddy Sarah Coomes, 11, together launched their apples in the catapult wearing the required headgear and eye protection. Sean Doherty, local artist from Castle Rock, CO, calls it "Hypothesis in motion" and is instructing students after class at East Middle School, 1275 Fraser St., in creating a catapult to launch pumpkins for distance and maybe, accuracy. 12-24 kids showed up each of three consecutive mondays culminating today with the final painting and construction of the "PumpkinHeads", team name, finished the launch device and demonstration testing. The end result will see the kids competing in the Jack-O-Launch at the PumpkinFest saturday, 9a-4p, 170 S. Chambers St., Delaney Farm. (Photo by STEVEN R NICKERSON / ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS)
