Digital STEM Challenge Activity- How Much Water Can A Penny Hold?

Tuesday, May 2, 2017 No comments
I love to do STEM challenges! I have always wanted to integrate more technology into my STEM challenges but hadn't fully wrapped my brain around how to integrate it properly.  I have done many digital interactive lessons for math class so I decided to try to take a STEM challenge I already had created and turn it into a digital STEM challenge!

The result: AMAZING!!! Not only were the students able to have a hands-on experience with a science and math challenge but they were able to practice making tables, graphs and typing in text boxes.  These students are learning 21 century skills in a meaningful, real world way!

Afterwards students designed their own investigation.  Students could compare the number of water droplets on pennies and nickels or the water droplets on clean pennies versus dirty pennies.  Students could think of what ever they wanted to test! Students loved designing their own investigation!   

I am very happy with how this turned out! I will be making two more digital STEM challenges, so stay connected! If you want to get your hands on this digital challenge check it out in my TpT Store or press this LINK! 

Until then- 
Peace, Love and Math
