Guam - Ten teams from the Guam High participated in the annual Smash or Pass Pumkin Drop. This year the students had to devise a contraption to protect their pumpkin from a 50-foot fall.

Naval Base public works officer Chris Coggins told KUAM News, "The challenge is simple to protect a pumpkin when it is dropped from 50 feet the execution is a little bit more difficult you have to come up with a concept you have to work as a team you have to come up with a design and then you have to build your contraption to protect and then it all comes down to pass or smash."

Coggins says this challenge helps build science, technology, engineer and math skills.
