Build Your Own Touch Screen Stylus

Build Your Own Touch Screen Stylus

Students will save money and solve the problem of messy fingers on their iPad/iPhone touch screens by building a simple stylus from everyday materials. The take-away stylus will meet all the required criteria: a flat, smooth, conductive surface more than ΒΌ inch wide. Students will troubleshoot to solve engineering problems.

Build Your Own Touch Screen Stylus is part of the STEM2D Student Activity Series. The content and layout were both developed by the Smithsonian Science Education Center as part of Johnson & Johnson's WiSTEM2D initiative (Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Manufacturing, and Design), using a template provided by FHI 360 and JA Worldwide. This series includes a suite of interactive and fun, hands-on activities for girls (and boys), ages 5-18, globally.
