Jefferson Lab - Teacher Resources -Educating the Next Generation in Science and Technology | 21st Century STEM Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Teacher Resources from Jefferson Lab

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) is one of 17 national laboratories funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. The lab also receives support from the City of Newport News and the Commonwealth of Virginia.

 

The lab’s primary mission is to conduct basic research of the atom's nucleus using the lab’s unique particle accelerator, known as the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF). Jefferson Lab also conducts a variety of research using its Free-Electron Laser, which is based on the same electron-accelerating technology used in CEBAF.

 

In addition to its science mission, the lab provides programs designed to help educate the next generation in science and technology, and to engage the public.

Scientists discover what’s killing the bees and it’s worse than you thought

Scientists discover what’s killing the bees and it’s worse than you thought | 21st Century STEM Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

As we’ve written before, the mysterious mass die-off of honey bees that pollinate $30 billion worth of crops in the US has so decimated America’s apis melliferapopulation that one bad winter could leave fields fallow. Now, a new study has pinpointed some of the probable causes of bee deaths and the rather scary results show that averting beemageddon will be much more difficult than previously thought.

 

Scientists had struggled to find the trigger for so-called Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) that has wiped out an estimated 10 million beehives, worth $2 billion, over the past six years. Suspects have included pesticides, disease-bearing parasites and poor nutrition. But in a first-of-its-kind study published today in the journal PLOS ONE, scientists at the University of Maryland and the US Department of Agriculture have identified a witch’s brew of pesticides and fungicides contaminating pollen that bees collect to feed their hives. The findings break new ground on why large numbers of bees are dying though they do not identify the specific cause of CCD, where an entire beehive dies at once.

Weird science: STEM fields face image problem in K-to-12 schools

“Every kid starts out as a natural-born scientist, and then we beat it out of them. A few trickle through the system with their wonder and enthusiasm for science intact.” ~ Carl Sagan

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

"Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) are not only underrepresented in our education system, as revealed by the latest National Household Survey data, they’re also saddled with what the Conference Board of Canada calls “an important image problem.” And these negative stereotypes, which begin as early as grade school, are resulting in major competitive shortcomings".
