Top STEAM tools for Online and Offline Learning: Part 2 - Daily Genius

Top STEAM tools for Online and Offline Learning: Part 2 - Daily Genius | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Last week, we looked at some of the top STEAM tools for online and offline learning by exploring web-based platforms and unplugged lessons and board games. With President Obama’s recent initiative to bring computer science to K-12 education and make computer programming a basic skill for all students, many of you will be on the lookout for new and interesting ways to bring these STEAM tools to your classrooms. This week, we’ll look at two new categories of tools, robots, and microcomputers and microcontrollers.

Model that can give accurate descriptions of behavior in ferroelectric materials developed

Model that can give accurate descriptions of behavior in ferroelectric materials developed | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

(Phys.org)—A team of researchers with the Carnegie Institution for Science and the University of Pennsylvania has developed a model that allows for accurately predicting how ferroelectric materials will behave when exposed to an electric field. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the team describes how they used one factor all such materials had in common to create the model and how it might be used in future applications. Patrycja Paruch with the University of Geneva and Philippe Ghosez with the University of Liège offer a News & Views paper on the work done by the team in the same issue, and why they believe the model could be used to design new types of sensors.

Coast Lines

Coast Lines | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
In the next century, sea levels are predicted to rise at unprecedented rates, causing flooding around the world, from the islands of Malaysia and the canals of Venice to the coasts of Florida and California. These rising water levels pose serious challenges to all aspects of coastal existence—chiefly economic, residential, and environmental—as well as to the cartographic definition and mapping of coasts. It is this facet of coastal life that Mark Monmonier tackles in Coast Lines. Setting sail on a journey across shifting landscapes, cartographic technology, and climate change, Monmonier reveals that coastlines are as much a set of ideas, assumptions, and societal beliefs as they are solid black lines on maps.
