Pumpkin Drop

This festive fall event invites elementary, middle, and high school students from across the region to design their own contraption that will protect a 10-inch pumpkin when it is dropped from the top of the Engineering Sciences Building. There are certain restrictions on what materials can be used to construct the apparatus that are outlined when teams register for the event. The pumpkins that best withstand the treacherous 11-story fall and come closest to the target on the ground, will be considered as finalists.
