The Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) is an extracurricular, hands-on, project-based learning program for students, incorporating aerospace-specific science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
eCYBERMISSION, a web-based STEM competition for students in grades 6–9, is seeking dedicated individuals—teachers, college students, parents, community leaders, business leaders, and anyone else with a background or interest in STEM—to serve as Virtual Judges and help build students’ interest and knowledge of STEM, as well as be a part of a rewarding experience. Register as a volunteer before February 22, 2017.
Imagine if students could launch an augmented reality Pokémon GO-style app that turns the world around them into Charles Dickens’s London or J. D. Salinger’s New York. Proponents of the digital humanities—the combination of art and literature and modern tech—are working to figure out how to make this imaginary scenario into reality.
In the last few years, a small group of designers at Artifact Design created a system called the Zed Digital Makerspace. (Zed stands for “Generation Z Education.”) This network system connects schools with museums to promote STEM education through project-based learning.
