Halloween may be over, but local high school students are still putting pumpkins to good use.
The Arroyo Grande Eagle Robotics Team held their annual Pumpkin' Chunkin contest at Talley Vineyards in Arroyo Grande on Saturday.
Students worked hard on drawings and models of catapults, and on Saturday, they were finally able to put their work to the test.
Participants were broken into categories based on the size of their catapults, and pumpkins that traveled the farthest were declared winners in their category.
Christopher Kim, a senior at Arroyo Grande High School, says he enjoys going to competitions, and it is nice because the whole team is working together to create a finished project.
This is Kim's fourth year on the team and he says he is loving it.
"This is a great way to learn physics, and it's actually kind of fun. It brings the family out, and, you know, we all can see what these kids have put together and worked so hard on just come to life."
The event provides students with the opportunity to interact with the community while increasing support for the team.
