Product Description
Perfect for Halloween! Students love to launch objects and this STEM activity uses pumpkin candy. Those little pumpkins are just the right size to launch through the air. Here's the good news! You can substitute with small plastic pumpkins, orange pom-poms, or even real tiny pumpkins. Even better, change this completely and use any time of year! Try tiny hearts for Valentine's Day or jelly beans in the spring!

This challenge is available in money-saving bundles!

In this challenge, students will design and build a launching device that will propel a piece of candy through the air and attempt to hit a target. The candy is your choice, but we used candy pumpkins. Students have some specific rules to follow in building the launching device and, of course, rules about launching the candy. The class will culminate with a target blasting opportunity for everyone!

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes:
• Craft sticks
• Pipe cleaners
• Rubber bands
• Masking tape
• 3 ounce cups
• Straws
• Plastic spoons
• Candy
• Styrofoam cups
• Pom-poms or cotton balls (optional)

The package specifically includes: cover, table of contents, teacher background, materials and preparation page, 4 pages of teacher directions, 4 pages of photographs, one extra Hints page, two versions of constraints posters with matching lab sheets*, one sample answer lab sheet, a scoring rubric, and an editable file. Check the preview to see which forms are editable! The page count listed for this package includes everything. *One set of constraints and the matching lab sheet are specific to Pumpkin Launching and the second set is worded to be used for any kind of candy.

This challenge will need 1 class session (1hour) to complete.
