Training Camp For Science Teachers | Chemical & Engineering News

Training Camp For Science Teachers | Chemical & Engineering News | Football trainer | Scoop.it
To improve their game and stay in top physical shape, baseball and football players flock to spring and summer training camps for rigorous practices led by specialty coaches. Physical science teachers at secondary schools can also practice their game during the off-season by attending an ASM Materials Camp for teachers. The camps aren’t likely to draw TV crews or adoring fans jockeying for photos and autographs. But they do attract enthusiastic participants who come to hone their science-teaching skills and energetic instructors who make the process educational, rewarding, and fun. 

“We’re trying to help teachers develop new tools, tricks, and hands-on techniques for teaching basic materials science in ways that will engage their students and make them curious about science,” says Charles Hayes, executive director of the ASM Materials Education Foundation (ASM-MEF). For the U.S. to stay competitive in science and engineering, Hayes asserts, “we need to get youngsters interested and excited about these subjects.” Helping educators step up their science-teaching game with interesting and thought-provoking demonstrations that are safe and inexpensive is a key step in that process.

 

ASM-MEF is the education arm of ASM International, a northeastern Ohio-based global organization of some 36,000 members that focuses on serving the materials science and engineering profession. The education arm, which was founded in the 1950s to promote science and engineering education among young students, began organizing and hosting educational workshops for teachers in 2002.

 

The curriculum at these five-day camps, which are held at locations around the country during the summer and are offered at no cost to teachers, “is like Materials Science 101 at the high school level,” Hayes says. ASM discovered years ago that a substantial fraction of teachers knew little about the properties of solids and consequently underemphasized that subject in their teaching. “Yet solids make up so much of the stuff around us and are critically important to many areas of technology,” Hayes says.

Benefits of cognitive training after coronary artery bypass

Benefits of cognitive training after coronary artery bypass | Football trainer | Scoop.it

My Comment: The idea that the brain needs rehabilitation after major surgery is not been adopted.  It's routine for patient's to have physical rehabilitation after major surgery.  Cognitive & memory training is an area of rapid commercial growth.  Whether this will prove to have real value is uncertian.  Training led to small improvements in time to respond.

Medsacpe's review of this:

The study showed that 65% of the patients showed a cognitive deficit 1 week after surgery, and 41% still showed a deficit 1 month after surgery. However, those who received cognitive training showed significant improvement in performance compared with the control group.

For example, in an assessment of reaction time at 6 months, the mean time for a dual task in the control group was 2108 milliseconds, compared with 1836 for the attention-memory group and 1706 for the memory-attention group.

================

Cognitive deficits are frequent after coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) in the elderly population. In fact, memory and attention deficits can persist several months after the surgery. Recent studies with healthy older adults have shown that memory and attention can be improved through cognitive training programs. The present study examined whether memory training (method of loci and story generation) and attentional training (dual-task computerized training) could improve cognitive functions in patients aged 65 years and older who underwent CABG surgery. Participants (n = 51) were assigned to one of three groups: (1) control group (tested at 1, 3 and 6 months after the surgery), (2) attention training followed by memory training, (3) memory training followed by attention training (groups 2 and 3: tested at 1, 2, 3 and 6 months after the surgery). The trainings took place between the 6th and 10th week following the surgery. The three groups were compared before and after each training program using attention and memory tests and neuropsychological tests. The results showed that attention and memory trainings lead to significant improvement in the cognitive domain that was trained. It thus seems that cognitive training can be a promising tool to enhance cognitive functions after a CABG surgery.

Time to Sweat at the Micro-Factory!

Time to Sweat at the Micro-Factory! | Football trainer | Scoop.it

Twice a week, the Local Motors Fitness Coordinator gathers those who want to participate in an hour long physical training on the south side of the micro-factory. We begin with a warm up that includes dynamic movement and joint preparation before moving on to a strength and conditioning workout that includes 3-4 anaerobic exercises with 4 sets at each exercise. I noticed my heart rate stayed within the aerobic and anaerobic levels for most of the training, really getting that good cardiovascular workout. Local Motors CEO Jay Rogers even joined us for a few minutes – and let’s just say, as a former Marine, Jay showed us all up! Cool down brings another set of stretches, focusing on the muscles used during the anaerobic portion of PT.

Injury, Rehabilitation and Psychology - #Fitness #Health | Football trainer | Scoop.it

"Whether its recreational or professional, injury is a common occurrence at all levels of sport and exercise. Evidence has shown that physical factors such as over-training, equipment and playing conditions are the major contributors towards an athlete’s injuries. However, there are many other psychological factors that play a huge role in the gaining, prevention and rehabilitation of injuries." http://buff.ly/12ORtSt
