STEMulate Learning Continues past #SciFund Challenge | Project STEMulate Learning

STEMulate Learning Continues past #SciFund Challenge | Project STEMulate Learning | #SciFund | Scoop.it

The original #SciFund Challenge provided the STEMulate Learning project with equipment that is currently supporting the World Community Grid (WCG), working on globally impacting issues such as disease treatments, fresh water resources, and clean energy technologies. This project aims to obtain an open-source community-developed 3D printer called a “Thing-o-Matic” for use in workshops, allowing young learners to go beyond merely drawing out their ideas – but to create them as actual objects! 3D printers transform designs in a computer into physical form that learners can take home, show off, and use to investigate what comes next based on their dreams and fanciful ideas.

We need your support to obtaining this do-it-yourself mechanism to be paired with the computer built from the #SciFund support. Tell your friends, and stop by the next phase of this exciting learning effort supported by individuals interested in guiding innovators of the future towards Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)!

על החיידקים שמשתמשים במוטציות כנשק, והדוקטורנטים שצריכים מכם עזרה - מדע אחר - תפוז בלוגים | #SciFund | Scoop.it
מדענים צריכים לחקור. על כך אין הרבה ויכוח. אבל מעט מאד אנשים - לפחות מחוץ לקהילה המדעית - מודעים לכך שמדענים צריכים גם לדבר, והרבה. חוקר באוניברסיטה מבלה כמה שבועות בשנה כשהוא נודד מכנס מדעי אחד למשנהו ומדווח על התוצאות שהשיג במחקריו.

"People are inherently fascinated with new discoveries and exploration. Through efforts such as the SciFund Challenge, people are given the opportunity to 1) learn about up-and-coming research, 2) feel connected to the researchers themselves, 3) choose for themselves which research efforts their money will support and 4) feel a sense of personal investment in scientific endeavors, something that is, unfortunately, rarely available to the general public."

What does a scientist who can't raise his budget do? From now on, he can join the # SciFund project, which connects scientists with the public who can contribute to promote his research. "Some support comes from family, but some also comes from strangers" says a PhD student at the University of Tel Aviv about his biology project.
