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!

In partners or groups, students work against a criteria and constraints list to build a low-energy machine to toss treats. The teacher chooses from one of two challenge goals: maximum launch distance and/or target-accuracy.

This challenge is a great introduction to simple machines, particularly levers!
