Trick or Treat

Goal: Halloween is almost here, so it is time to trick or treat! Make a MINDSTORMS trick-or-treater—how it looks and moves are up to you, but it must announce that it is trick or treating. It can hold up a sign, say “Trick or treat,” or some other clever method that you devise.

Start date: October 1, 2015
Due date: October 31, 2015

Rules: Your trick-or-treater can be cute, funny, scary–whatever you want–as long as it somehow announces “Trick or Treat.”  Your device must include an NXT or EV3. You may use sensors, motors, and pieces from the NXT or EV3 kits. You are also welcome to use multiple MINDSTORMS kits, additional LEGO pieces, third-party sensors, and non-LEGO materials.
