Southern Maine Community College lab technician Katie Drew, left, launches a pumpkin on a school-built trebuchet Oct. 25 to the delight of students and staff from James O. Kaler Elementary School. The launch and accompanying worksheets for students to calculate the speed of the soaring pumpkin were part of a morning campus visit designed to demonstrate the possibilities and benefits of higher education. Students from the South Portland school also toured classes, met staff and faculty, and ate in the campus dining hall.
