Reign in the crazy on Halloween by engaging your students in STEM!
Students need to create a tool that will pick up a spider ring from a cup of lots of rings. Brainstorm what types of tools could do that, but explain that the materials they are using it is not just as simple as bending something into a hook.
Materials: I include a suggestion, but you are not limited to these and you can swap some for other materials too- depending on what you have. The idea is to give materials that CAN NOT be bent into a hook easily…that is the challenge- to create some kind of hook or tweezer type device.
Have students work in team of 2-you can do 3, but the best collaboration for this happens with smaller number of students.
