12th Annual PUMPKIN DROP & Physics Carnival WAS A SUCCESS!

Don't miss all the slimy messy yucky Pumpkin Guts Next Year 2019!

The 2018 Department of Physics Pumpkin drop was a success! Thank you to President Kelly, who dropped the first pumpkin off the Science building roof. Physics professors drop pumpkins to demonstrate common physics principles such as constant acceleration of gravity, terminal velocity, and Newton's laws. About 150 5th and 6th grad students from A.D. Henderson and Grandview Preparatory, as well as the FAU community, were in attendance. See more photos of the drop here and the carnival that followed here

Physics-related carnival games & face painting for children! Dunk Tank! Ice Cream! Drones!
Come watch Physics Professors drop real pumpkins off the roof of the Science & Engineering Building to
demonstrate common physics principles such as constant acceleration of gravity, terminal velocity,
and Newton's laws. Watch Sir Isaac Newton explain the theories behind these principles!!!!

Check out the video below to see what you missed last year and what you can look forward to this year!
