Outfits like code.org and Black Girls Code help, and so do some employers: Google’s Made with Code aims to bring women into the field, while payments company Square offers high school code camps. Intel just last week pledged $5 million for computer science programs at two high schools in Oakland, California.

How can students learn to code when their teacher are often clueless about it and software professionals - in high demand - make much much more as developers of games and 0.99$ ipad apps...? Lately resources are starting to appear - see some in the article.


Why is this important? IMHO learning to code is important because it teaches about structure and procedures and thinking through every possible scenario. It is a way of life, more than a technical skill. No?

University of Houston: Researchers Create Lens to Turn Smartphone into Microscope

University of Houston: Researchers Create Lens to Turn Smartphone into Microscope | technology | Scoop.it

Lens Could Give Schools, Clinics Low-Cost Alternative to Conventional Equipment


Researchers at the University of Houston have created an optical lens that can be placed on an inexpensive smartphone to amplify images by a magnitude of 120, all for just 3 cents a lens.

 

Wei-Chuan Shih, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at UH, said the lens can work as a microscope, and the cost and ease of using it – it attaches directly to a smartphone camera lens, without the use of any additional device – make it ideal for use with younger students in the classroom.

 

It also could have clinical applications, allowing small or isolated clinics to share images with specialists located elsewhere, he said.

Mexican students invent self sustaining electric motorbike - YouTube (2min)

there are 2 young Mexican inventors, Victor Garcia, age 17 and Raul Grajales, who has built and shown a selfsustaining electric motorbike.

It is started by a conventional 12 Volts Lead Acid battery and if the back wheel goes faster than 2000 RPM the whole bike gets selfsufficient and propels itself via some kind of recharging process.


They also use 2 big 1.5 Farad Supercapacitors for the recharge storage and probably these supercaps also recharge then the battery.

Here is the text Reuters has published about this invention:

Mexican students invent eco-friendly motorbike

What if you could harvest the energy of a moving vehicle to continue to power it ? 

That is the question asked by students of this technical high 
school college in Oaxaca, Mexico, one year ago. 

It resulted in this prototype motorcycle called R-Walker created by 17-year-old Victor Garcia.

VICTOR GARCIA, SAYING:

“The project is a prototype that generates its own energy as it goes along: As it goes faster and covers longer distances, 
it generates more energy. In that way, you don’t have to charge the battery every 6-8 hours.”

Garcia calls the process “auto-sustainability.”

It’s based on the principle of converting energy through speed and distance travelled; the engine becomes self-sustaining, generating more than 2,000 revolutions per minute.

A battery is used to spark ignition, and afterwards without using any combustion the vehicle can carry up to 110 kilograms and travel at more than 60 kilometers per hour.

Co-designer Raul Grajales said R-Walker could bring huge savings for motorcycle users, as well as the environment.

RAUL GRAJALES, SAYING:

“With this, we have reduced the use of 200 batteries a day and seventy percent of pollution, because it does not contaminate and has zero emissions and we use one battery every 5-10 years.”

They built the eco-friendly motorbike from recycled materials, bringing its final price tag to around $200 – a comparatively small sum when considering its potential benefits.
