2019 FIRST World Championships: Enable Recap
I Got To Meet Dr. Woodie Flowers! If you know anything about FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), you’ve probably heard of Dr. Woodie Flowers. Dr. Flowers is an emeritus professor of mechanical engineering from MIT. He has been a mentor for FIRST for a long time, and his contributions to the Continue...

Every new batch of learners is a little bit different from the one before. However, given the pace at which new media and technology are changing, 21st century students really stand out in terms of what they need to succeed in school and beyond.

What do you do when you see a need to bring together young women in STEM (including yourself)? You create your own initiative, and provide networking, outreach and education opportunities to individuals in your community, and beyond. Meet Mylene Tu, engineering student at the University of Waterloo, and founder of FEM in STEM. Tell us Continue...

In the early weeks of summer, the very last thing on a teacher’s mind may be on curriculum resources for the September. However, if you’ve been tasked with upping your STEM game with next year’s class, the next two months might be an ideal time to prepare. Thankfully, there are organizations out there that can Continue...

Our sister company, Red T Media, has launched a project on Kickstarter, and are seeking help and support to grow their Wiseland app by adding more big questions for little thinkers.

For 21st century students, digital technology has become a natural extension of everyday life—from communicating with friends and family on smartphones to watching movies on tablets and accessing infinite amounts of information via search engines. It’s not surprising that students are embracing technology in the classroom. While some teachers are receptive to the integration of Continue...

We’ve all heard the urban legend (or maybe the true story) of the university prof who tells his/her class on the first day “Look to your left and look to your right. Two of you won’t be here at graduation.” I think (and hope) that the “survival of the fittest” model of education has, well, Continue...

Encouraging hands-on learning for younger students is a no-brainer.  The thought of a kindergarten classroom with lectures and theoretical lessons is laughable. Even in high school classrooms, practical, applied learning is still seen as a staple, a necessary component when preparing learners for future career paths. However, as a recent Toronto Star article illustrates, many universities seem Continue...

Three things happen when you go to an amazing conference: You have a lot of moments where you meet new people and think “Yes! That’s what I do too!” You have a lot of moments where you meet new people and think “Wow! So cool! I wish I were doing that!” You have moments when Continue...

“In our high-tech labs, we sometimes still see the existence of printed manuals or static documents. How do we engage students even more by delivering online interactive content straight to the student’s device, while at the same time allowing lab instructors to get insights into how well students are doing? We found a solution with Continue...

  Whether it’s in secondary school, higher education or professional training, the purpose of the lab has always been to allow learners to go beyond just theory. For many, the promise of a hands-on approach is a big part of the appeal of being in a STEM-related field. But do labs deliver on this? Does the learner’s experience Continue...

Want to get little thinkers interested in STEM, especially little girls? Write an amazing story about it! Andrea Beaty, best-selling author of Iggy Peck, Architect and Rosie Revere, Engineer shares her thoughts on creating picture books that inspire young minds. What inspired Rosie Revere, Engineer? I wrote Rosie after Iggy Peck, Architect. My editor and I had Continue...
