What Is Hack-O-Ween?

Hack-O-Ween is one of our five Innovation Challenges.  This challenge is designed to foster design and mechanical engineering skills by creating interactive exhibits.  This is a fun project that your students can dig into to learn about: design thinking, problem solving, team work and science in SpookTacular ways.

The Hack!

Students can hack and animate Halloween props or costumes.  Their task will be to take a normal prop or decoration and make it their own, by following some simple hacking and animation guidelines. 

Hack-O-Ween Challenge is open!

This challenge opens September 9 and closes on Halloween (Oct.31).  Students will be able to exhibit their creations and some will be choosen for the Atlantic Wide School MakerFaire June 9, 2022.
