Halloween Science Treats

by Kim Moldofsky, The Maker Mom

When it comes to Halloween science there are no tricks because everything can be explained, which means everyone who celebrates gets treats in the form of knowledge.

Ever since Discovery Education and 3M announced that I was a finalist, I have come up with possible problems we face that I could solve as my final project.
