STEM is the general trend for science activities in today's courses. STEM activities can be implemented at any time throughout the course. It is not content specific, but requires scientific knowledge and critical thinking skills to complete.
STEM activities focus on real-world issues and problems, they are hands-on or open-ended inquiry, investigative or experimental, foster collaboration, are rigorous, and allow for multiple right answers.
I've even included questions to lead class discussions prior to and after the completion of the activity.
For this activity students conduct an experiment using water, soap, and food coloring to create convection currents. What occurs is almost a tie-dye affect. The calculations for this experiment involve specific heat with a brief reading portion and labeled equation to help them solve the problems.
