STEM and Writing: A Super Combination - Edutopia

STEM and Writing: A Super Combination - Edutopia | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

"I brought a superhero into my classroom the other day. He wasn't wearing a cape. He didn't have an alias. But he had the greatest superpower of all: inspiration.

When you teach using project-based learning (PBL), one brings outside expertise into the classroom. My eighth graders begin the year creating science fiction based origin stories for original superhero characters as an introduction to a greater advocacy unit. Therefore, it seemed natural to bring in an actual scientist. Which brought me to CalTech and Dr. Spyridon Michalakis."

Water – The Essence of Life

Water – The Essence of Life | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away…

NASA After School Universe

Afterschool Universe is an out-of-school-time astronomy program targeted at middle school students. It explores astronomy concepts through engaging hands-on activities and takes participants on a journey through the Universe beyond the solar system. 

This program is now widely available to afterschool program providers to run in your local communities. Middle school students are fascinated by the cosmos and topics such as star birth, star death, and black holes. But they rarely have an opportunity to explore that interest as the middle school curriculum does not typically address these topics.

 Afterschool Universe was developed to fill this niche as the middle school years are a critical time in the development of attitudes about science and career options, especially in girls. By offering astronomy programming in out-of-school-time, where schedules are less constrained, we can engage students in science and keep them interested. 

 There is a tremendous potential for teaching science and astronomy in the afterschool setting. Young people spend a large percentage of their time out of school and many of them do so in unstructured and unsupervised ways. Afterschool programs often reach those who most need additional help and can be offered in a variety of settings where the students go when the school day is over.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:
I teach this program. I love it and so do the participants

Killer Volcanoes — NOVA | PBS

Killer Volcanoes — NOVA | PBS | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

"When a team of archeologists uncovered a mass grave in East London in the 1990s, they initially hypothesized that it must have been a burial site of victims of the plague. However, radiocarbon testing revealed that the skeletons dated from sometime around 1250 CE, a century before the plague was introduced to Europe. So what happened? Through examining a number of historic manuscripts, archeologist Don Walker discovered that England had experienced a famine, caused by unseasonably frigid weather. In the year 1258 this famine, which killed no fewer than 30% of London's population, was likely caused by a volcanic eruption. This recent episode of PBS's NOVA, which aired on October 25, 2017, explores the science behind how volcanic eruptions impact global climate. This episode includes a consideration of the Mount Laki eruptions of 1783 and 1784, the Mount Tambora eruption of 1815, and the Mount Pinatubo eruption of 1991. Interested viewers can watch the full episode and check out a few related resources."
