Pumpkin Launch

Pumpkin Launch

Pumpkin Launch is a free-community event that invites guest to come onto a university campus and participate in a fun-filled STEM festival. The headlining event invites local engineer clubs and student Pumpkin Launch contestants to use the principles of STEM to build trebuchet machines that send pumpkins high in the sky and towards large targets lining the field – sometimes more than 50 yards! The team with the highest score wins the coveted Pumpkin Launch trophy! 

Guests can become an engineer for the day by making, building, and testing their own launchers at the hands-on learning encounters and STEM festival. Plus, enjoy some of OC’s best food trucks, have a bite and keep your energy up. 

 The event will take place at Cal State Fullerton’s athletic field, located at 800 N. State College Blvd, Fullerton, CA 92831.
