10th Annual Pumpkin Launch

PumpkinLaunch_IITTodayThe 10th Annual IIT Pumpkin Launch will be held 1-2:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 18, 2014 at Ed Glancy Field. Using pumpkin-launching machines they design and build, student teams compete for prizes for distance and accuracy.

What sort of designs will win this year’s competition…catapult, trebuchet, ballista, or something entirely new? After the conclusion of Pumpkin Launch, IIT’s Residence Hall Association will host pumpkin carving.

The deadline to register a team is Tuesday, September 30, 2014. To apply to participate, see the documents on Hawklink under Organizations. Click BMES and then Documents, or follow these links:
