Steam from the sun

Steam from the sun | ZenStorming - Design Raining Innovation | Scoop.it
A new material structure developed at Massachusetts Institute of Technology generates steam by soaking up the sun. The structure—a layer of graphite flakes and an underlying carbon foam—is a porous, insulating material structure that floats on water. When sunlight hits the structure’s surface, it creates a hotspot in the graphite, drawing water up through the material’s pores, where it evaporates as steam.

STEM is incredibly valuable, but if we want the best innovators we must teach the arts

STEM is incredibly valuable, but if we want the best innovators we must teach the arts | ZenStorming - Design Raining Innovation | Scoop.it
We're obsessed with teaching kids math and science, but they'll never be great innovators without art class. (STEAM improves STEM! Why the Arts need to be part of STEM innovation.

Research shows the Arts help round out a child's education. 

Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, needs to include the Arts.

STEM needs to become STEAM.
