Coloring and Enhancing Our S.T.E.M. Program


Mohamed Ayoub

What is color and what does it have to do with S.T.E.M? We demonstrate how a topic such as color is integrated in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) program. This presentation will shine a light on the way chemistry contributes in daily life through color, focusing on the chemistry of food colors, fireworks, rainbows, natural dyes and pigments, and more, as part of the enhancement of the S.T.E.M. program. We also show how students engaged in diverse S.T.E.M. Club activities are involved in research and critical interdisciplinary thinking.
