It’s time to bring in the “Math” portion of STEM!
Students will create a Google Sheets ‘Bill of Materials’ (BOM) for their robot. In this BOM they will itemize the 3D printed parts, motors, and screws. They will use a scale to weigh the 3D printed parts and a formula to determine the cost of plastic material for each part. They will then learn how to use a summation formula to produce a total cost.
