Spooky Science: Fun Halloween Experiments and a STEM Activity

In this one-time class, students will participate in several fun Halloween science experiments and activities: we will make a bat fly using static electricity, grow a ghost balloon, and build a candy catapult!

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Learners will understand the role of electrons in static electricity as they make their tissue paper bat fly. They will also understand the chemical reaction between baking soda and vinegar, knowing what causes their balloon to inflate. They will gain a basic understanding of kinetic and potential energy as we build a candy catapult. 
I have a Bachelor of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology and over two years of online teaching experience. I have worked in both environmental and microbiology laboratories. I also have young children who love doing fun science experiments with me at home.

Flying Bats: Inflated balloon Tissue paper Tape Scissors Bat outline (attached) - (Parents or learners can cut out a tissue paper bat before class if they prefer.) Growing Ghosts: Deflated balloon (white if possible) Black marker Empty plastic bottle (approximately 16 oz. size) 1/2 cup (4 oz.) vinegar 2 tbsp. baking soda Small funnel Candy Catapult: 10 jumbo popsicle/craft sticks 3 rubber bands (or stretchy hair ties) Bottle cap Tape (or hot glue gun if an adult is near) Small candy to catapult An adult can help prepare the following before class: Cut out a tissue paper bat, blow up and tie a balloon, and fill an empty plastic bottle with 4 oz. vinegar.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Although we will have fun with Halloween topics such as bats and ghosts, none of the content presented will be scary for learners. Younger learners may need assistance with several parts of the class: blowing up a balloon, pouring vinegar into a bottle, using a funnel to add baking soda to a deflated balloon, and using rubber bands to secure popsicle sticks. Many of these can be completed before class by an adult if the adult wishes to remain hands-off throughout the class. 
I will be sharing my screen and using Canva slides. The learner does NOT need to have a Canva account.
