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."

Why we need to research strange underwater creatures

Why we need to research strange underwater creatures | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

Alejandro Sánchez Alvarado is an advocate for underwater creatures with behaviors almost too weird to believe. From a plankton/jellyfish that reproduces asexually and births its slinky-like progeny from its “head” (see below) to a worm that can be sliced into 18 pieces and keep living, the researcher believes investigating these little-understood lifeforms — and finding new ones — may hold the secret to new breakthroughs in science.
