Description

Halloween STEM Challenges are a great way to keep students engaged, thinking critically, and working on hands-on problem solving at a time they usually struggle to concentrate!

Students work in partners or groups against a criteria & constraints list to create a ghost transporter that lifts cotton ball “ghosts” from the ground to the top of a pulley. (For younger students, the teacher will set up the pulley; for older students, the teacher will provide materials and students will include the pulley and attachment as part of their designs.)

This challenge is a great introduction to simple machines!
