Build a Digital Mood Ring!

Tuesday, July 28 • 1:09 PM - 1:49 PM

STRAND: Middle Level

Show Details

Sponsoring Company: Texas Instruments

We will bring science and coding together as participants learn to do some basic coding (no experience necessary) while developing a mood ring! The science of color mixing is explored while determining the right body temperature thresholds. Is fuchsia flirty? Should green be groovy? Lets find out!

1. Teachers will see how to get up to speed on STEM and coding with TI’s STEM projects. 2. Specifically, teachers will see how they can engage their students in designing a working digital mood ring by mixing primary colors to create any color they want. 3. If teachers or coordinators need help getting a STEM project going at their school and district, then the TI STEM Team can help.

Sponsoring Company: Immersed Games

Video games can help improve your students’ three-dimensional, NGSS learning by having students use science and engineering practices as they directly engage with phenomena as part of storylines. We will examine model activities and discuss how games can fit into your classroom instruction even in a remote or hybrid setting.
