Can't do math? Dance it out

Can't do math? Dance it out | STEM and education | Scoop.it
Kirin Sinha wanted to get more young girls interested in math. So she started SHINE, a tutoring program that uses dance to teach mathematical ideas.
Dennis P. Garland's insight:

"The basis for SHINE is the concept of "Kinesthetic learning," which essentially means moving your body in order to better retain information."

Awesome chemical reactions that look like impossible sorcery

This is not a video trick. This person is pouring a transparent liquid which, all of the sudden, turns black. It's the magic of chemistry, Mr. White. The reaction above is called the iodine clock reaction, which is a classic demonstration of chemical kinetics. But there are others, more complex and cooler than this.

Going Deep: STEM in the Connected Classroom

Going Deep: STEM in the Connected Classroom | STEM and education | Scoop.it
Blending STEM with the connected classroom is a powerful learning model, provided we have innovative thinking, teacher autonomy and flexible scheduling.
Dennis P. Garland's insight:

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is not a separate subject, and you don’t “do” STEM just by doing any one of its pieces.

ISS HD Earth Viewing Experiment

The High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment aboard the ISS was activated April 30, 2014. It is mounted on the External Payload Facility of the European Space Agency’s Columbus module. This experiment includes several commercial HD video cameras aimed at the earth which are enclosed in a pressurized and temperature controlled housing. Video from these cameras is transmitted back to earth and also streamed live on this channel. While the experiment is operational, views will typically sequence though the different cameras. Between camera switches, a gray and then black color slate will briefly appear. Since the ISS is in darkness during part of each orbit, the images will be dark at those times. During periods of loss of signal with the ground or when HDEV is not operating, a gray color slate or previously recorded video may be seen.
Analysis of this experiment will be conducted to assess the effects of the space environment on the equipment and video quality which may help decisions about cameras for future missions. High school students helped with the design of some of the HDEV components through the High Schools United with NASA to Create Hardware (HUNCH) program. Student teams will also help operate the experiment. To learn more about the HDEV experiment, visit here: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/research/experiments/917.html

Philadelphia education news and stories, education directory from the Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News.
Dennis P. Garland's insight:

Of 57 industrialized nations that participated in a 2011 Trends in International Math and Science Study (TIMSS), United States fourth graders ranked 11th place. Not bad. Even better was that 8th graders ranked 9th of 56 countries. But, by age 15, in a Program for International Student Assessment (PISA, 2009), American students were in 31st place out of 65 participating countries.
