Below you will find archives for all of the STEM activities articles we’ve published in IEEE Spark. Activities include DIY projects and experiments you can do at home to explore different STEM fields, like building your own speaker, exploring nanoparticles with sugar, and more!
The IEEE and its members have been at the forefront of wearable technology, working to share advancements and research, highlight security concerns, and develop standards for wearable development, communication, and security.
Anaglyph technology, like that used in 3D movies, uses stereo images that are encoded using different colors. 3D glasses with different colored lenses filter the images, allowing each eye to see a different image. In this activity, you will make your own 3D glasses and create a 3D image using anaglyph technology.
One of the challenges in growing the Internet of Things is that connected devices need to be able to work together.In this activity, you will design and build a mobile phone to be compatible with a new kind of charger. After designing your phone, you will develop a technical standard describing what is required for a mobile device to be compatible with this new charger.
In 2014, driven by the daily influx of new information about the Internet of Things and what it could do, IEEE Future Directions launched the IEEE Internet of Things Initiative to help clarify and distribute the latest information about the Internet of Things and its potential to transform the way we live and the way machines work.
Many towns encourage residents to save used paper products which are then recycled. But, did you know that you can recycle paper yourself in your home? In large scale paper recycling, the first step can be the most challenging: encouraging people to gather used paper instead of throwing it out! Once it’s collected, the paper is shredded and soaked in water or special fluids to break it down into fibers. Read More
