Pumpkin Launch at Cal State Fullerton
Come launch your engineering dreams at our 12th Annual Pumpkin Launch. Join Discovery Cube and Cal State University, Fullerton at Cal State Fullerton’s athletic field for a day of flight, engineering, and pumpkin-smashing hijinks.
Pumpkin Launch is a free-community event for students and families to participate in a fun-filled STEM festival at a university campus.
Contestants use the principles of STEM to build trebuchet machines that send pumpkins high in the sky and towards targets that line the field. The team with the highest score wins the Pumpkin Launch trophy!
The free event provides hands-on activities for students and families to design and build their own launching devices, test their machines and enjoy some mini competition.
Plus, enjoy some of OC’s best food trucks, have a bite and keep your energy up.
