Many schools want to make science exciting for students and teachers. But when it comes to teaching STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics), it can be challenging. Doing hands-on projects in class can be expensive because you need special tools and materials. Still, we must recognize how important STEAM is in education.

It’s a journey that helps us understand the personal impact we have on our remarkable planet every minute.
Let’s embark on an exploration of indoor air quality with databot™! Using its sensors, databot™ allows us to “see” indicators like humidity, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and CO2 levels. Join in to assess if your local environment is safe and healthy. To conduct this experiment, you’ll need (an IOS or Android smart device with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to connect to databot™, databot™ + Phypox App installed on your IOS or Android device, an airtight container to hold databot™ and materials for testing, white vinegar & baking soda and 2 –glass containers of 250 ml).
Applied Math with databot™:
With databot™, math becomes exciting and authentic! You can use actual data, solve real problems, and do genuine math calculations. It’s not just about numbers; it’s about solving practical issues. Plus, databot™ works together with programs like Desmos and Excel, making math more colorful and exciting. This way of doing math isn’t boring; it’s like discovering a new side. It can change how you feel about math, boost your confidence, and make the math class the most incredible place to be!
In this applied math activity, students explore concepts like Cartesian Coordinates, 3D coordinates (x, y, and z axes), positive and negative numbers, and acceleration. Students apply addition, subtraction, and division, work with decimal places, calculate average percentages, and engage in data collection, visualization, and analysis.
In conclusion, databot™ emerges as a revolutionary tool transforming STEM and STEAM education, addressing the challenges of making science and technology exciting and accessible.
