The Next Generation of Girls in STEM
4/24/2012 - “Knowing that your ideas…might change the future is something that I like,”
says Eva, a high school student from California, who is featured in
a new video released today by the
White House Council on Women and Girls. Girls in STEM, featuring young women scientists and engineers
who wowed the President and the nation at the
Science Fair in February, shines a spotlight on these
extraordinary young role models and their exciting projects – ranging from a machine that detects buried landmines,
to a prosthetic hand device, to a lunchbox that uses UV light to kill bacteria on food.

TED Blends Animation With Education at New Website
04/26/2012- A beta version of the TED-Ed Web site recently went live,
inviting teachers to use video clips
from its library or YouTube for assignments. "It allows any teacher to take a video of their choice and
make it the heart of a 'lesson' that can easily be assigned in class or as homework, complete with context,
follow-up questions, and further resources," says TED curator Chris Anderson. "Great teaching skills are
never displaced by technology," Anderson says. "On the contrary, they're amplified by it."
STEM Studies: Robotics Leading a Surge in Interest in Science and Math
02/15/2012 - Members of the Bowdon Elementary robotics club and their high school mentors spend one
afternoon a week manipulating Lego pieces to create what could eventually become a moving,
talking robot. The third graders constructed a motorized boat from Legos, which they programmed
to rock back and forth. According to Kathy Jenkins, a parent sponsor of the club, the only
limitation with the group so far is that the interest in the club has far outpaced the funding.
