The lack of high-speed internet services in many rural areas is one of the challenges hindering Florida's efforts to increase college degrees and spur economic development, a new report shows.
Scientific fields continually push the boundaries of innovation and progress, yet American high school students lack preparation, interest, and engagement in such subjects. Statistics show that in 2013, only 44% of high school graduates were ready for college level math and 36% for college level science.
For my students, process writing was a great way to reinforce what they were learning in pre-algebra, and reading mathematical fiction such as Chasing Vermeer allowed students to see how math mysteries could be solved. But how does one combine several subjects, such as in STEM, STEAM, and STREAM?
An atomic rocket has the potential to move more mass a much greater distance than traditional chemical propulsion. SpaceX will have its Falcon Heavy rocket in service within a year or two, making it the most powerful launch platform since the retirement of NASA’s Saturn V.
Overall, military and civilian personnel pay and benefits make up 42% of the defense budget.
A gender gap persists in science, technology, engineering and math, a problem that researchers say could begin to be understood and then solved through research. U.S. Rep.

The Building Blocks of STEM and Code Like a Girl acts both seek to fund research into early childhood STEM education.
China has sent an "unbreakable" code from a satellite to the Earth, marking the first time space-to-ground quantum key distribution technology has been realized, state media said on Thursday. China launched the world's first quantum satellite last August, to help establish "hack proof" communications, a development the Pentagon has called a "notable advance".
Like the leaders of these tech companies, Mattis is focused on acquiring more expertise in artificial intelligence. The difference is his goal: getting it into the U.S. military faster, to make it a "more lethal and more effective" fighting force.
The new factory that the two makers will set up at a yet-unannounced U.S. location will be capable of producing 300,000 vehicles a year, that output divided between the two companies. How much each would get is unclear, however. The factory will “create up to 4,000” U.S. jobs.
U.S. Rep. Mac Thornberry, a Texas Republican who chairs the House Armed Services Committee, which oversees defense spending, agrees the military needs to better keep abreast of the innovation happening in the commercial sector.
