Let those pumpkins roll at the Carnegie Science Center

Jessica Peluso, of Edgeworth, holds her daughter Lila, 1, as she pushes her kitty cat-themed jack-o-lantern off the roof of the Carnegie Science Center during the Great Pumpkin Smash event along the North Shore on Saturday as Will Fitzgerald (front right), 5, of McCandless watches. Helping them learn about the physics of the drop is Program Development Co-ordinator from the Science Center Brad Peroney (behind in red). The post-Halloween event brought people out to observe the reaction of their pumpkin to being dropped off the 5 story roof, with some splattering, some shattering, and some just bouncing.

Kids got an opportunity to see physics at work Saturday with the pumpkin drop at Carnegie Science Center, North Side.

People brought their carve jack-o-lanterns to roll off the Science Center's roof for fun and as a science demonstration.

The Science Center composts all of the pumpkins at the end of the event and educates visitors about the science behind that process.
