I like how the information in this infographic is broken up into parts Space, Atmosphere, Sea, underearth and ground. It has lots of statistics that are backed up by sources.

Why (And How) Students Can Get Excited About STEM [INFOGRAPHIC]

Why (And How) Students Can Get Excited About STEM [INFOGRAPHIC] | iScience Teacher | Scoop.it
There's a lot of buzz out there about STEM - not only in the realm of teaching and learning, but in terms of job growth and potential, too.

 

According to the Smithsonian Science Education Center (the makers of the handy infographic), People who understand science and technology are smarter, more competitive, more productive, and more engaged global citizens.

Great series for introduction to scientific concepts and research methods. When we are aware of sources of bias we can devise ways to test for it or eliminate it.

To innovate, scientists and engineers find inspiration in the arts | SmartPlanet

To innovate, scientists and engineers find inspiration in the arts | SmartPlanet | iScience Teacher | Scoop.it

In the innovation field, a rebirth of Renaissance thinking is brewing. Scientists and engineers are engaging with the arts to think creatively.

 

The idea is also currently reflected in the debates on re-vamping the U.S. educational system to boost the innovation skills of U.S. students. Media artist John Maeda, president of the Rhode Island School of Design, has spoken at numerous events — including before Congress — about the value of incorporating the arts to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) educational initiatives, turning STEM to “STEAM,” as Maeda has said.

To innovate, scientists and engineers find inspiration in the arts

davidconover's curator insight, May 6, 2013 10:20 AM

The Arts is the mixing bowl for science, technology, engineering and math.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, May 6, 2013 8:20 PM

Some disciplines have evolved to their own death. Engineering has evolved logically, but not necessarily culturally,” Silver of Intel and Makey Makey, who was trained as an electrical engineer, told me at PopTech. “Creativity isn’t part of that any more. So we look to where it is; we’re desperate for it. We look to art. And it’s wonderful, because it’s there.”

Getting Kids Engaged with Primary Sources | Cool Tools

Getting Kids Engaged with Primary Sources | Cool Tools | iScience Teacher | Scoop.it

The U.S. National Archives Experience Digital Vaults (pictured above) offers students a good introduction to discovering and working with primary source materials. Rather than turning kids loose on millions of records in the National Archives, Digital Vaults focuses on a curated collection of 1,200 items.

 

Within the site, there are activities designed to help students discover important connections between primary sources. One section, Pathways Challenges, provides quizzes that ask kids to analyze a specific resource and then find the related document within the collection. Teachers and students can create their own quizzes or take advantage of the premade challenges.

 

Students who create free Digital Vaults accounts can collect primary source documents and images and use them to create digital posters and videos within the available templates.
