Too many responses to quote individually but let me simply say I am so thankful for the overwhelming response to this thread. You guys are tops!

I did check with the teacher and discovered that there will be multiple groups of kids at various "stations", so I will interact with smaller groups but for less time than originally thought (maybe 15 minutes each?). That resolves the "attention span" quandary but it also means figuring out what will have the most impact. Glad I have a couple months to prepare!

My suggestion would be to put a small goal post on a stepper driven linear actuator. Get them to throw a ball through the posts, but use a sensor to detect the ball and move the posts sideways, so it's impossible to do at throwing speed.
