In addition to the letter and number of the day, Sesame Street will be featuring some exciting new topics in the show’s 42nd season: engineering, science, and math!
Researchers have long noted that students who watch the show as children tend to do better in school, so incorporating science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts can be seen as part of a larger effort to boost STEM learning in the U.S.
Want to go to Stanford University but a little short on funds (or maybe still in high school)? No need to worry – this fall, Stanford School of Engineering will be offering three lecture courses online, open to the public, and free of charge.
Two professors in the Stanford School of Engineering, Peter Norvig and Sebastian Thrun, say in a recent New York Times article that they were inspired by the achievements of Salman Khan in bringing free online education to the world.
