This STEM project incorporates Halloween with engineering! Students will create a scaled model of a contraption that can be used in a haunted house to make a “ghost” pop up and scare a passerby. Students can only use items off of the approved materials list to create their scare contraption, and designs must include at least one simple machine.
Students should have prior knowledge of simple machines before completing this challenge.
