Students will see how monkeys teach manners, elephants show empathy, and ants imitate water in ScienceTake, an online video channel by The New York Times. The series combines research from the world of science with footage of the natural world in action. Dolphins mug for the camera in an awareness test. Wolves beat dogs in a teamwork test. Cockatoos rival children in shape recognition. A tiny robot inspired by caterpillars and jellyfish crawls, walks, and swims inside the human body. Each video is accompanied by a related article from The Times.
Each month we publish blogs and several newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in April.
The Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology (IGB) at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is dedicated to transformative research and technology in life sciences using team-based strategies to tackle grand societal challenges. One of IGB’s programs is the Art of Science, a celebration of common ground between science and art.
