2020 Online MIT Great Glass Pumpkin Patch

Virtual Event

Online MIT Great Glass Pumpkin Patch: the annual fundraiser for the MIT Glass Lab

We would have loved to celebrate our 20th annual pumpkin fundraiser with you, outdoors in Kresge Oval on a perfect crisp New England fall day, but, for reasons we are all familiar with, that cannot happen this year.

But wait! Instead, a team of Glass Lab instructors has worked hard to create an Online MIT Great Glass Pumpkin Patch for your shopping enjoyment (and our survival). Between early last October and this March when MIT students were all sent home and the lab shut down, the staff and students made about 450 glass pumpkins, or roughly 25% of our usual yearly inventory.

Beginning Saturday, October 24th at 12:00 noon, through Monday, October 26th at 8:00PM, all of these pumpkins will be available for purchase on this site (mitglasslab.org).
