Can SolidWorks Simulation be used with Pumpkins? Engineering students from Team Ethos and Wright State University say YES! They produced this video covering 5 years of their development and design changes using SolidWorks Simulation to analyze structural members and drag of pumpkins. Projectile motion is cool when pumpkins are invovled.
The world finals of this year’s Pumpkin Chuckin will be televised on Discovery Channel on Thursday Nov 25 after the Mythbuster Marathon. Check you local tv listings.
Fun TV for the entire family and it invovles Physics – lots of Physcis! For SolidWorks educators, you can try out the Trebuchet Curriculum located on the SolidWorks Customer Portal for more fun with engineering, math and science.
