This project explores:
- Science of color
- Mathematical inequalities
- Feedback and control systems
- Temperature sensor input
- Color LED output
- Coding concepts like loops, conditional statements and variables
This STEM project provides students and teachers a great introduction to STEM and coding with the creation of a working digital mood ring. No experience is required!
With TI-Nspire™ CX II graphing calculators and the TI-Innovator™ Hub with TI LaunchPad™ Board, students will learn to program input and output feedback controls to make LED lights mimic the colors of a real mood ring. This is square one for everyone interested in learning more about coding — and we make it easy to get started.
Select from three different project versions that vary in length and emphasis. Choose the version that’s right for you and your students, and follow the link to watch the project videos.
