Could you survive the Star Wars universe? Take our quiz!

Could you survive the Star Wars universe? Take our quiz! | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Malfunctioning spacecraft. Inept droids. Ruthless bounty hunters. Sith Lords. Between these and a surprising number of bottomless shafts in which to tumble down, George Lucas’ classic sci-fi universe is fraught with peril. The intrepid space explorer will need quick wits, a sense of adventure, and the wisdom of a longtime fan to make it out alive. Do you have what it takes to survive in a galaxy far, far away?

Dark Site Finder: Light Pollution Maps

Dark Site Finder: Light Pollution Maps | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

Description by The Scout Report

 

"

"Anyone who loves exploring the night sky should head over to Dark Site Finder, a website designed to help visitors find spots ideal for stargazing. Created by photographer Kevin Palmer, visitors to the site can check out the level of light pollution in any region of the United States by entering an address into the site's map. As the site notes, "For many people getting to a 100% dark sky is not possible without spending an entire day driving. But if you look for a site where the sky is only dark in the direction you want to observe, it becomes easier." To further aid those looking to explore the night sky, the site provides tips for checking out the Milky Way or Aurora Borealis. Dark Site Finder also features a regularly updated stargazing weather forecast from Accuweather. The Photography section is also not to be missed, featuring Palmer's gorgeous photographs and videos of meteors, aurora borealis, and comets. [MMB]"

Art of Science

Art of Science | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

Description by The Scout Report

 

"On Art of Science, visitors can browse through seven online galleries of gorgeous, curious images. These images, as the website explains, "are not art for art's sake. Rather, they are produced during the course of scientific research." Since 2005, Princeton University has hosted seven contests that invite scientists around the world to submit photographs (and, during its most recent 2014 contest, videos) of images created from their work in science - including chemistry, biology, and computer science. These images are then judged "for their aesthetic excellence as well as scientific or technical interest." On this website, visitors can browse galleries of winning photographs, which include a model of earth's geomagnetic reversal, maps of website addresses and traffic, and the spectacular results of chemical reactions. All entries, with the exception of entries from the 2014 contest, are accompanied by a description explaining the image's origin and scientific significance."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 16, 2016 9:58 PM

Last month I was in New Orleans, and it rained for about 2 hours…it was staggering to see how many issues stemmed from that drainage in such a flat floodplain.  This is so much worse.  This article focuses on the weather/environmental situation, and this one on the political/human impact.

Here is what we have been working on over the last weekend. This is a list that comprises some of the best math apps and extensions in Chrome store. We have literally gone through hundreds of apps to finally decide on the apps that would make the cut.These extensions are meant to help kids develop math skills through a wide variety of exercises, activities, games, interactive simulations and many more. Some of these apps are integrated with Google Drive and are also available for  iPad, Android, and Chromebooks.
