Connect the Dots. But first, they must embrace science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to build the skills that will serve as their tool set for the future.

Connect the Dots

For that to happen, we must work together to ignite their curiosity and get them excited about STEM in their everyday lives. So we ask you to join us in connecting the dots between learning and life. Together, we can ignite the spark in students around the clock and around the world. While after-school learning and summer programs provide rich opportunities to keep students inspired beyond the classroom, we know that unequal access to these programs can contribute to disparities in student achievement. STEM Camp combines hands-on labs, engineering challenges, digital investigations, and more - all designed to immerse kids in the grand challenges of science set forth by the National Academy of Engineering.

The final mathematical quantity discussed in Lesson 1 is acceleration.

Acceleration

An often confused quantity, acceleration has a meaning much different than the meaning associated with it by sports announcers and other individuals. The definition of acceleration is: Acceleration is a vector quantity that is defined as the rate at which an object changes its velocity. An object is accelerating if it is changing its velocity.

Scientific American: Bring Science Home. A Herbarium. A Herbarium By Andrea Tarozzi, February 1996 English version revised by Edward Green Here the Belorussian version The most important part of every collected specimen is the flower, so the best seasons for picking up plants are spring and summer; but remember that certain species show their flowers in autumn or even winter, so do not neglect colder months for your excursions.

Symbiotic relationships define typically the close and long term interaction of different biological organisms or species.

What Is a Symbiotic Relationship?

It may also be referred to as the mutual survival of different organisms in the biological world. Each species or partner interacting in a particular symbiotic relationship is called the symbiont. Nature's best examples of symbiosis. Seen here perched on the head of a primate, the African oxpecker was thought to be friendly tick-eating helper, but is actually a vampire bird, sucking blood out of open tick-wounds.

Nature's best examples of symbiosis

Credit: Wikimedia SYDNEY: There are many cases in nature where species team up to help each other, a behaviour known as symbiosis. Resources or services that may be scarce for one organism may be cheap and easy for another to provide. Biologist Cameron Currie from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, USA, cites bacteria cosily dwelling inside humans as a classic example.
