Chemistry: All About You - Educational Activities - Xperimania V: Chat. 25 October2012 The first Xperimania chat in collaboration with inGenious took place on Thursday 25 October 2012 from 14:00 till 15:30 o'clock (CET).

Chemistry: All About You - Educational Activities - Xperimania V: Chat

This chat dealt with the topic "Chemistry is all about you" which was inspired by the issues that were addressed in the EPCA film "Chemistry: All About You". Industry Experts During one and a half hour, students had the opportunity to ask topic-related questions to the four experts: Participating Schools. Scratch and ICT.

CoP - Using Astronomy as an aid to teaching STEM

CoP - Traditional Classroom VS Technological Classroom. Launch a Similar Program in Your Office - "Mind the Gap" Program. You can easily launch your own program in order to scale this initiative or a similar one.

All you need is a few enthusiastic individuals who are willing to dedicate a few hours a month. Planning: Determine date(s) and time for the school visits. Recruit volunteers to host the students (select a program manager if planning multiple visits per year). Reserve conference room for each visit. Reach out to teachers and schools interested in the visits. Presentation: Create a presentation that discusses current technology and your company's contribution/products/services. We like to use ones that show computer science applications in our day to day lives, or one that explains how search engines work. Panel: The goal of the panel is to introduce the girls to role models. 2-3 female engineers introduce themselves and answer questions from the audience.

Mind the Gap: Encouraging women to study engineering. Women make up more than half the global population, but hold fewer than a third of the world’s engineering jobs. In the U.S., female students comprise fewer than 15 percent of all Advanced Placement computer science test takers. Even in high-tech Israel, few girls choose computer science. Not only is this a loss to companies like Google and everyone who benefits from a continually developing web; it's also a lost opportunity for girls. Beginning in 2008, a group of female engineers at Google in Israel decided to tackle this problem.

We established the “Mind the Gap!” Since we started this program over three years ago, we’ve hosted more than 1,100 teenage girls at our office, and an additional 1,400 girls at three annual conferences held in leading universities. The results are encouraging. Girl Rising. Science: it's a girl thing! Projectos de Responsabilidade Social - Educação - EX.I.T.E. A tecnologia transformou o mundo mais profundamente do que qualquer outra revolução na história.

No entanto, a opção por carreiras tecnológicas é ainda superior nos homens do que nas mulheres. Assim, há todo um esforço de sensibilização a cumprir no sentido de se mudarem mentalidades e cativar um maior número de mulheres para as áreas da ciência e da tecnologia. Para ajudar a equilibrar a disparidade verificada, a IBM criou em 1999 o Programa EX.I.T.E. – Explorar Interesses pela Tecnologia e pela Engenharia.

Numa iniciativa mundial, a Companhia pretende contribuir para que um maior número de raparigas, sobretudo em idade de opção académica e/ou vocacional, ou seja, entre os 11 e os 13 anos, desenvolva o interesse por áreas científicas e tecnológicas. Durante uma semana, as jovens participam em projectos variados de Engenharia, de Ciência ou de Matemática, entre outras matérias. JCMM - Jihomoravské centrum pro mezinárodní mobilitu.

Research Using the Internet. Fair-Use Policy More and more students are turning to the Internet when doing research for their assignments, and more and more instructors are requiring such research when setting topics.

Research Using the Internet

However, research on the Net is very different from traditional library research, and the differences can cause problems. The Net is a tremendous resource, but it must be used carefully and critically. The printed resources you find in the Library have almost always been thoroughly evaluated by experts before they are published. This process of "peer review" is the difference between, for example, an article in Time magazine and one in a journal such as the University of Toronto Quarterly. On the Internet, on the other hand, "anything goes. " Discover the latest on health research. Sir Ken Robinson's New Book on Finding your Passion.
