How much work should be involved in the projects?

A team comprises three students who have committed between 20-40 hours a week for 5 weeks. (Not including one bootcamp week where we'll get them familiar with their new tech stack.)
So in total, most projects should include enough work for between 300-600 hours of intern-level work. (Not sure how much an intern can do? Plan for, in the worst case, about 50% of the output of a junior-level engineer, although many of our students will exceed this.)
One strategy many mentors use when planning their project is to come up with a base deliverable, and have a number of possible "stretch goals" in mind.
