"The music is pumping, the crowd is cheering and people are dancing. This is science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), but not as you know it. I’m at the Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre as an invited judge for the 2016 Australia Regional FIRST (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition. The competition is for students aged around 14-18 who, with the help of mentors and teachers, have six weeks (or significantly less in several cases) to design, build and program a robot for a designated challenge. This would be a difficult task even …"

A recent study conducted by Microsoft revealed that most girls become interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) at the age of 11-and-a-half, but interest cools around the age of 15. The opportunity for immersive learning through simulations and gaming is humbling, but Microsoft Education isn’t alone in working to ensure that STEM is available to everyone, and to enable every student to reach their full potential. We want to celebrate just some of our inspirational partners who support us in our aim:

Integrating STEM Learning in Early Childhood Education | RAND | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Children can understand concepts in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), they enjoy exploring them, and early development of STEM skills seems to support learning later in life. But an effective teaching system is needed before STEM learning can be fully integrated into early childhood education.

NASA's new searchable library lets you get your space fix big time

NASA's new searchable library lets you get your space fix big time | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Calling all wannabe astronauts: You can now explore outer space with NASA from the comfort of your own desk chair.

NASA has launched a new library of audio, video, and images of space exploration -- a database with more than 140,000 files from over 60 collections.


The best part? A search engine that lets you flit from celestial wonders to astronaut selfies.


Worried 140,000 isn't enough? It'll will keep getting better.
"It's a living website," NASA said. "New and archival images, video and audio files continually will be added."

Implicit Surfaces of Space functions

Besides 3D Graphs that draws functions with (x,y) as parameters, you are now able to view implicit surfaces of a function in a graph with MathTouchBook.


Surfaces are then defined by space functions with (x,y,z) parameters, and will draw a skin where the value is zero ! Optional parameter t stands for time and will allow to animate anything as you can see in the Video.


A special method for computing values were used: more than 200 000 calls must be done through the whole graph of each function when the shape changes, and the CPU can hardly do that. The solution was to reuse the OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL) function exporter: It translates the function into a source that can be compiled directly with OpenGL drivers, so it is executed 1000 times faster by the Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) of your Smartphone or Tablet.


The new update also brings a better keyboard , with fractional numbers, and many improvements and corrections.

Technological Thoughts - WHAT STEM LACKS

Technological Thoughts - WHAT STEM LACKS | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) This fantastic combination of courses is suppose to be the penultimate combination for student knowledge and success. This is supposed to make students ready for future careers and achievement in life. This sounds so promising and I mean who doesn't want all of their students to succeed. Yet STEM in education lacks some critical components. I was at METC 2016 and listened to a speaker who nailed the problem with STEM right on the head. To paraphrase what he said, Trust me there is no lack of jobs in the STEM field, their is a lack of competency and understanding.
