Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) is a university-based outreach program operating in eight states. MESA strives to provide an opportunity for ethnic minority, low income, and first generation college-bound students to explore college majors and career interests with a group of peers interested in attending college.
The Broadcom MASTERS (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering for Rising Stars) is a competition for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students who participate in an SSP-affiliated fair with their science, engineering or math project, and are nominated to compete in the national competition.
Middle school students will be nominated to compete in the Broadcom MASTERS at SSP-affiliated science fairs held in the 2010-2011 school year. Nominees will enter the competition by completing an online application where they will explain their science project and demonstrate their use of STEM principles – science, technology, engineering and math – in the development and presentation of their project.
The 2011 annual NanoDays, is coming in the spring, March 26-April 3. It’s not too early to get ready now.
Join the NISE network’s NanoDays 2011, a nationwide festival of educational programs about nanoscale science and engineering and its potential impact on the future, by hosting a day or a week of activities.
eGFI is featured on the new National Academy of Engineering website “An Engineering Education Makes a World of Difference“.
“An Engineering Education Makes a World of Difference” is a new website from the National Academy of Engineering that highlights role models who have used an engineering education to innovate products, processes, and services that improve human health, welfare, and happiness. Twice a week for each week from Monday, January 31 through Thursday, July 14, the site will release a new video (less than 30 seconds long) to be posted to the web and which can be “pushed” to individual cell phones. You can text “CASEE” to 21534 to subscribe to the twice-weekly videos.
Need some help with your homework? Look no further than Khan Academy.
The website features over 1,800 mini-lectures on subjects including mathematics, history, finance, physics, chemistry, astronomy, and economics.
All online tutorials are produced and narrated by Salman Khan, who has a master’s in electrical engineering and computer science from MIT. Usually under 15 minutes in length, the videos are low-tech and conversational, with Khan using step-by-step doodles and diagrams on an electronic blackboard to explain various concepts.
