GIANT PUMPKINS on display at UEM LAB
Have you been to the UEMLAB, English Language Program at the Universidad Europea de Madrid this week? Have you seen the Giant Pumpkins in the basement of Building A? Every year for the last 6 years we've sponsored a GIANT PUMPKIN CONTEST. The seeds from the preceding year's pumpkins are distributed in the spring. The little seeds become little plants, then long vines and finally yellow flowers appear. This is the critical moment. Will the flowers become pumpkins? Will they just wither and fall on the ground? Will the treacherous white flies get them?
Come to the UEM LAB and check out this year's crop, brought in by people from many different departments at the UEM. Who said University professors are always glued to their computers and spouting knowledge in the classroom? Who said the rest of the university community are too busy to have a hobby on the side?
