PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Engineering Challenge for Halloween!!
Autumn means Pumpkin Chucking Time - an awesome STEM activity! No pumpkin chucking catapults near your location? No problem...hold your own mini contest with this fun activity that reinforces knowledge of simple machines. Grab a bag of candy mini pumpkins, some spools or small plastic vials, and some paint stirrers and you are good to go! Our packet walks your students through the design process from initial drawing to the test and launches! We do this activity on October 31st, but any time this month will guarantee an exciting time in class.

"I love the combination of creation and reflection on the process of creating. This is a great holiday activity and good for common core! I also appreciate the incorporation of a presentation at the end, as we are beginning to use google drive to create presentations. This is so relevant to our class!"

This activity is also available in a Halloween discounted bundle with three other fun activities. A perfect addition to a party!
