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 Nanotechnology Council (NTC) has been around for more than a decade, working to support nanotechnology theory, design, and development in its industrial, scientific, and engineering applications.
Since 1987, the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) has been working to advance innovation, education, and research in robotics and automation.
When engineers design a robot, they usually have a specific problem or task in mind. In this activity, you will design a robot arm that needs to be able to pick up a Styrofoam cup. You’ll have a variety of materials to choose from. You’ll select your materials, sketch out your design, then build and test your robot arm. If it doesn’t work, go back to the drawing board and try again!Read More
IEEE members across disciplines research and develop music, music technology, computer programs, and more, all of which lead to our being able to understand music better and do more with it.
When engineers design sports equipment, they use the latest materials, manufacturing techniques, and shapes to enhance sporting – while maintaining the rules of a sport. In this challenge, you will work with a friend to devise racquets out of everyday materials that will be used to volley a ping pong ball across a table.Read More
