Science Toys Science Toys Make toys at home with common household materials, often in only a few minutes, that demonstrate fascinating scientific principles. To make it easier to build some of the toys described in the book we have a catalog of parts and science kits. Some of the catalog items are: Science Toys

The Engineering Encounters Bridge Design Contest, formerly the West Point Bridge Design Contest, is an Internet-based competition that provides middle school and high school students with a realistic, engaging introduction to engineering. The winning team will receive a $5,000 cash scholarship, and all finalists will receive a notebook computer! More about prizes… The contest is sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers and The Army Educational Outreach Program. Check out other STEM activities and programs sponsored by these organizations. West Point Bridge Design Contest

Science With Me - Science Website for Kids ScienceWithMe! was developed by a mom and dad team of professional scientists who love science and want to pass that love of science onto the next generation. In order to do that, we developed a bundle of science animations, songs, e-books, and science apps for kids, each carefully designed for teaching scientific principles in a fun and engaging way.

Flu Fighters | The Loom Michael Osterholm, his face a pink-cheeked scowl, looked out across the table, beyond the packed room at the New York Academy of Sciences, and out through the windows. The New York Academy of Sciences is housed on the fortieth floor of 7 World Trade Center, and their endless bank of windows affords a staggering view of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and New Jersey. One reason that its view is so magnificent is that there’s a huge gap in the skyline–and a huge gouge in the ground–where the Twin Towers once stood. Osterholm had come here from Minnesota, where he runs a research center for infections diseases and terrorism, to talk Thursday night about the threat of a new kind of flu sitting in labs in the Netherlands and Wisconsin.

Einstein’s Secret to Amazing Problem Solving (and 10 Specific Ways You Can Use It)

Einstein is quoted as having said that if he had one hour to save the world he would spend fifty-five minutes defining the problem and only five minutes finding the solution. This quote does illustrate an important point: before jumping right into solving a problem, we should step back and invest time and effort to improve our understanding of it. Here are 10 strategies you can use to see problems from many different perspectives and master what is the most important step in problem solving: clearly defining the problem in the first place!
