4-H Activities include:

Virginia Tech Maker Festival 2017 -Eyeball Catapults

Eyeball Catapults
Dress up a ping pong ball and you have one creepy eyeball to launch! Students can use plastic spoons or cupcake liners as the resting place for their eyeball. All they need to build the catapult properly is some Popsicle sticks and some rubber bands. It is trial and error, discovering what engineering works and what will not work! Students can contend to see whose eyeball will fly the farthest and spook the competition.   Virginia Tech Maker Festival 2017 -DIY Slime

DIY Slime
This one might get messy, but what’s Halloween without a little mess? Slime always excites kids because it’s different from anything they’ve ever felt. There are a plethora of simple recipes online for slime, but most include white glue, water, Borax powder, and some food coloring for fun. Bring some measuring spoons and maybe a few paper cups for the students to mix in and you’re in for a slimy surprise! Making slime works on how different substances come together to make the slime and some measurement skills.

And… Bat Paper Plane, Candy Corn Dissolving Experiment, Rockets to the Rescue, Witches Hat Duct Tape Crafts, Ghost Rockets Halloween Activity, Glowing Oil and Water Experiment
