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.
