In the season of pumpkin carving, corn mazes and crunchy leaves, it’s easy to get swept away with the magic of fall — just don’t forget that STEM is the magic that makes a lot of it possible. Chemistry powers the remarkable change of colors displayed on every tree. Farmers plan corn mazes with graphs and diagrams, then use GPS, drones or precise stakes to carve out their creation. Even baking the perfect pie requires precise measurement, balanced proportions and food science for the combination of a flaky crust and moist filling.
Combine these autumn themes with useful STEM skills and get ready to bring your learners memorable and seasonal STEM challenges!
