You can call it the "great pumpkin" launch.

Nearly a hundred math and science students in North Jersey showed off their skills to see who could toss their pumpkin the furthest.

The teens follow a STEM program to design and construct their own launchers.

Most of the students are eyeing careers as future engineers.

The event, although friendly, is also a chance to land a spot in the world competition, and receive a coveted scholarship.
