  • N.C. Junior Achievement gets kids involved in STEM
    Students involved with the Central North Carolina Junior Achievement's "Full STEM Ahead! Skills for a Global Economy" program are learning plenty about the careers and business opportunities associated with science, technology, engineering and math. "The JA program is a wonderful opportunity to communicate and interact with school children of all ages," Cathy Ali-Stone, who volunteers in the program from Procter & Gamble, said. "The training tools are very well defined, with clear, concise instructions. It is so wonderful to see 'the light turn on' for kids during the educational activities."

  • Engineering professor inspires student photography
    Engineering students enrolled in Cooper Union's Albert Nerken School of Engineering in Manhattan are developing their artistic sides in a class called "Scientific Photography" taught by acting dean Alan Wolf. "The first day as I'm standing in front of the students, making up the course as I'm speaking, I said, 'Oh, by the way, each of you will be responsible for a small artistic portfolio consisting of 12 images,'" he says. "I encouraged them to bring their technical mind-set to bear on whatever their artistic theme was." ScientificAmerican.com (11/14) Email this Story
  • Encouraging students in STEM fields is identified as high priority
    With only 5% of U.S. college graduates having science, technology, engineering and math-related degrees and demand for such workers growing, schools, businesses and others must do more to feed the STEM pipeline, writes Justina Nixon-Saintil, director of education initiatives for the Verizon Foundation. "Our focus should be two-fold: to help teachers to innovate the way students are learning science and math so that they gain confidence and achieve while also driving interest and passion for STEM. And this needs to happen well before students enter high school." The Huffington Post/The blog (11/12) Email this Story
