Trick or treat? If we had to pick, we would pick treats! In this session, we will make candy grabbers and learn about engineering, levers, and other simple machines.
Preparation: nine (9) standard-sized popsicle sticks, two (2) thick straws (smoothie-sized or bubble tea-sized) or paper to make straws, duct tape (if you are using paper straws or will be making straws from paper), eight (8) toothpicks, scissors, tape, one (1) bowl filled with candy. Optional: sewing needle (with adult supervision). Wear your Halloween costume for a chance to win a prize!
