About the event

Join us on Family Weekend for a smashing good time at the 16th Annual Pumpkin Drop. Sponsored by the Physics and Astronomy Club, this pre-game, gravity-bound extravaganza celebrates the fun side of science by dropping pumpkins of all shapes and sizes from the highest point in Pullman: the 12th floor of Webster Hall. Additional entertainment and demonstrations for kids of all ages will be on site as well.

Events begin at 11:00 a.m. with experiments, demonstrations and fun activities for kids by both the physics and geology clubs. Followed by the main event, pumpkins dropping from 12 stories, beginning at 1:00 pm.

Don’t miss gravity at its best!
