The Flying Pumpkins activity was part of an ongoing collaboration between Palm Beach Atlantic University, the Palm Beach County School District and the City of West Palm Beach called the Parker Avenue Consortium. Established as a means to assemble resources to benefit students and their families living in the vicinity of the University's Marshall and Vera Lea Rinker Athletic Campus, the consortium is developing partnerships with other private and public partners. One such partner is the Quantum Foundation, which recently awarded Palm Beach Atlantic a three-year grant to develop an innovative approach to science education for middle-school students. To prepare for Flying Pumpkins event, students have been testing their theories in the classroom. Then on Tuesday, the sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade classes fired pumpkin after pumpkin using a giant slingshot specially constructed for the event by students in the after-school program.

Playwright William Shakespeare never wrote essays or testimonies expressing his personal views on religion, but many of his plays, particularly his comedies, explore Christian values, one of the world's foremost Shakespeare scholars said at Palm Beach Atlantic University on Monday.

Some people may take for granted the easy access we have to the Bible. However, said Dr. Harold Rawlings, many men and women gave their lives so we could hold in our hands today the Bible in the English language. That is why, for the past several years, Dr. Rawlings has traveled the world with his unique collection of historical texts – most of which date back to the 14th and 15th centuries – sharing the evolution of the English-language Bible. He brought his collection to the Palm Beach Atlantic University Warren Library last week, sharing his knowledge – and his books – with students, faculty, staff, and prospective students and their families.
