The Department of Physics will be hosting its inaugural “Physics Pumpkin Toss” competition at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, October 27, 2017 in the Jadwin Hall Courtyard. The experimental gravity competition will pit four teams of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers against each other to launch pumpkins off the roof of Jadwin Hall and aim to hit closest to a target’s bulls eye in the courtyard below. Faculty members from the Department of Physics will serve as judges and the winning team will receive a trophy. Wear your Princeton gear, colors or Halloween costume! This event will be free and open to the university and public.
