Families from all over the Southland are working hard to use their imagination and STEM skills to design a handmade launching device to test out during the 9th Annual Pumpkin Launch at Cal State Fullerton on November 7th from 10am to 2pm. Guess what? Your family is invited to watch the high-flying fun, and participate in interactive activities.

Having Fun at the Discovery Cube OC Pumpkin Launch

We have been attending the event for many years, and it is one of our favorite STEM events of the year in Orange County. Our kids favorite activity was getting to make their own mini catapults out of popsicle sticks, spoons, and marshmallows!

What to bring? The event is free to the public. However, there are food trucks at the event serving food at an additional fee. I recommend bringing blankets and lawn chairs to use on the grass while watching the pumpkin launch. If it is a warm afternoon, bring an umbrella for shade as there is limited shade on the field where the pumpkin launch takes place. The activities do get busy so a plan of arriving early to avoid the lines for different STEM activities.
