A dozen teams of EE students came together Friday afternoon to compete in EE's Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest.
This year's event was hosted in the Packard Atrium, with plenty of candy, refreshments, and music. Judges included student services staff Meo Kittiwanich and Teresa Nguyen, graduate advisor Kai Zang, and Professor Mary Wootters. Judging criteria included completeness, technical skill, creativity, and costumes.
The timed competition resulted in a variety of creative and clever pumpkins, from classic carved and painted pumpkins to IoT trick-or-treater sensing pumpkins that send texts to alert their presence at the door.
- Third Place went to the "PBBB&J" team of Nicole Grimwood, Nicolo Maganzini, Sophia Williams, and Tong Mu.
- Second place went to "Pumpkin-Bombking" Team, whose members are Anqi Ji, Elias, Wang, Stanislav Fort, and Philip Lee.
- The First place team was "2ndPlace4ever," Chris Vassos, Stephania Hsu, Lisa Yamada, and Abubakar Abid.
