Pumpkins and Powertools 2019
Hosted by DaBL
This marks the first year that DaBL has hosted a halloween themed event and it was a graveyard smash! Inspired by a similar event from MIT, the goal was to carve a pumpkin using some nonconventional tools. Many of these tools may be unfamiliar to students, especially in this medium, but through a lot of peer to peer teaching, we achieved quite a number of successful jack-o'-lanterns. Drills were used to create pilot holes that could be used to guide hand or electric saws. The electric saws employed also made cutting the tops of pumpkins a lot easier. The most useful tool might have been the kitchen hand mixers which served as a clever way to extract a lot of the pumpkin core. Check out some of the snapshots below and join us next year for a host of pumpkin fun!
