Pumpkin Chunkin’ 2018

Meet the ASME UD 2018 Pumpkin Chunkin’ buildteam! We had an absolute blast this year at Rowan University’s annual competition. Pumpkin Chunkin’ challenges prospective and current engineering students to work together to build a machine according to certain specifications to develop their engineering design skills. It also provides an opportunity for like-minded students from across the region to connect with and learn from each other while they have fun launching pumpkins.

Built in just a few weeks, we achieved a max throwing distance of 190 feet. Can’t wait for next year’s competition!
