Hello Friends and Colleagues,


      We invite you to participate in the Halloween Pumpkin Drop hosted by SPACE! The Pumpkin Drop will be part of the SFSU Fall Festival on Tuesday, October 31st from 12pm - 2pm. As a participant in the Pumpkin Drop, you and your team members will toss a pumpkin from the roof of the Cesar Chavez Building onto targets on the ground. Points and candy will be awarded based on accuracy.

What strategy will you take? 
Try to calculate the optimal trajectory? Or eyeball your throw?
Will you surrender your gourd to the whims of gravity? Or demonstrate your prowess with projectile motion?
Or maybe you just want to see that pumpkin go SPLAT, and the free candy is just icing on the top!  


      Whatever your perspective, we hope you will join us by using the sign-up link below! The Fall Festival will also include a costume contest, and tabling fair hosted by the Division of Student Life; so there will be something for everyone!
