A new theory on how the brain first learns basic math could alter approaches to identifying and teaching students with math-learning disabilities, according to Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) researchers.
Georgia Tech and McGraw-Hill Education are teaming up on an innovative approach to make elite education more broadly accessible.
Genetic engineering has become a core of the society affecting billions of people every day. However, students get exposed to it in a university or in advanced projects which show that even before they get into it, they already made a choice. On the other hand, if kids are exposed to it early on, their interest in engineering and science will expand more.
The future demands a large, diverse pool of innovative scientists, engineers and mathematicians who can work together to solve big problems. The working scientists who lead SC16, the premier international conference showcasing high performance computing coming up this November, envision and advocate for a future talent pool that looks far larger and more diverse.
The world's fastest computer runs a Chinese chip, and that fact hasn't escaped notice by the U.S. government. So how does the U.S. government bludgeon the Chinese chip threat? A new U.S. government working group aims to encourage domestic companies to use homegrown chip technology and resist the urge to buy inexpensive Chinese semiconductors.
We are less competitive than Singapore? How can that be? The reason is that Singapore, like Switzerland, has much better free-market policies.
Much has been written about ways we can inspire young girls to pursue traditionally male dominated careers, and much has been written about the ways we can break down the barriers that have traditionally kept them away.
Scientists aim to free millions of Zika bacteria-infected mosquitoes in Brazil and Colombia. This bacteria decreases the mosquitoes' ability to spread viruses. The bacteria named Wolbachia will be injected to the mosquitoes, that is responsible for removing their capacity to pass on viruses to humans.
Underestimating girls where most boys excel contribute in less females getting involved in STEM related fields. Children who are expected to do well in a specific area are more likely to succeed in the field. Oftentimes, kindergarten teachers are found guilty of this STEM gender discrimination. It's not that it's done intentionally but cultural beliefs just dictate it.
Education is evolving along with technology. Students have more tools available for their academic goals nowadays.
