Ignite STEM2D Activities

The Ignite STEM2D activities are the newest addition to the STEM2D Student Activities Series and are designed to provide volunteers with new ways to introduce students to the endless opportunities in STEM2D. Ignite activities are intended for use at career fairs, science fairs, exhibits, or any type of booth event. Each activity typically takes 5 to 10 minutes to complete and uses everyday materials. Ignite activities spark student interest in STEM2D disciplines, encourage students to apply their science knowledge and problem-solving skills, and inspire further participation in broader STEM2D experiences.
