Welcome to another post that is dedicated to highlighting an amazing site providing an awesome collection of resources to educators. The site entitled “MIT BLOSSOMS” is so much more...
"BLOSSOMS video lessons have the ability to enrich students’ learning experiences in the high school classroom and in some cases even the middle school. This incredible Video Library contains over 50 math and science lessons, all freely available to teachers as streaming video, Internet downloads, DVDs and videotapes. You will find that the lessons really are a complete resource including video segments, a teacher’s guide, downloadable hand-outs, plus a list of incredible online resources relevant to the topic."
In the US, girls are scoring lower on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) standardized tests even though their grades are higher. Is it "stereotype threat"? That is, are they performing badly because, as a supposedly less-able group, the pressure of the test is more intense? Lots to think about in this excellent article.
I'd like to know the gender breakdown for teachers in these advanced high school STEM classes - when I was young my high school STEM teachers were all men, but I hope things have changed since then.
To date the fund has empowered more than 38700 students and teachers in Maui County .Proceeds are used to support and administer MEDB-led STEM educational programs and to provide grants for the expansion Science, ...
A middle-school student at the Next Generation School in Champaign, Ill., creates a 3-D object with a classroom 3-D printer. Students in grades K-12 can "print" 3-D objects from computer-generated sources right in the classroom! The rapid prototyping or 3-D lithography process. The process is based on a research project that was headed by Nicholas Fang, an assistant professor in the Mechanical Engineering Lab at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and developed at the Center for Nanoscale Chemical-Electrical-Mechanical Manufacturing Systems (NanoCEMMS) at the university. NanoCemms is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center.
The New Year’s resolution is such an interesting, inspirational concept. The fact that we’ve institutionalized a specific time of year to be introspective and reflect on how we lived our last 12 months of life is a pretty incredible thing -- def...
"STEM lessons come to life through robotics. Shawn Bowser unpacks robots for his students in his Engineering/Robotics II class on Friday, as Ezra Brooks, 16, a junior, looks on. Students work with Vex robots for the class."
But what if they took that observation--that girls play creatively rather than plowing through kit instructions--and applied it to the Mindstorms line of programmable robots? Maybe in addition to their research, Lego should have ...
Nintendo is no stranger to success, and has sold millions of its flagship Wii, DS Lite, and 3DS systems. Perhaps one of the largest reasons why consumers buy its systems is because of how dependable the hardware is.
ITEST supports the research and development of innovative models for engaging K-12 students in authentic experiences that build their capacity to participate in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and information and communications technology (ICT) workforce of the future. ITEST projects must include students and may include teachers.
