Sukkot activities for teenagers?

Hi, I am leading a program for kids ages 5-17 for a synagogue’s Sukkot celebration combined with their Sunday school. I have a really fun lesson plan for the kids 5-12, we’re making buildings out of toothpicks and marshmallows (it’s an engineering experiment, since the parents want more STEM that ties into Jewish ideas and Sukkot is about building) then we’re doing candy sukkahs and learning about the lulav and etrog.

But does anyone remember any good Sukkot activities for older teens? I was thinking I could turn the toothpicks and marshmallows building activity into a competition, but then I don’t think a 15 year old would necessarily want to make a candy sukkah for an hour. Is there something really fun but a little more engaging/less juvenile? Feel free to share anything you remember from your own Jewish schools or synagogues!
