Lesson: Free Shot Physics Basketball not only can be exciting to play or to watch–especially this time of year, when the NCAA college hoops championship known as March Madness tips off. It packs a lot of math and science in each move. In this lesson, developed by Talking Science, a partner of NPR’s Science Friday initiative, together with John Fontanella, a physicist at the U.S. Naval Academy and author of The Physics of Basketball, students will learn how physics affects the game.

Innovative program rethinks high school November 3, 2014 | By Michelle Maitre | 2 Comments No bells ring at this high school, and you won’t find monitors roaming the halls or restless students asking fitfully for permission to use the restroom. But you might find biotechnology students cloning carrots in the lab, or see public policy students researching ballot propositions in preparation for a community-wide town hall forum they’re organizing, or watch a group of budding computer scientists hunched over a computer monitor, creating a video game they’ve designed from scratch. “We think we are a special place,” said Rick Watson, chief executive officer at the Center for Advanced Research and Technology. The center is a public high school program located in the Central Valley city of Clovis, where about 1,400 students a year participate in half-day career-based courses featuring cutting-edge technology and equipment. What makes CART unique isn’t only its approach, but also its composition.
A Starter Pack for Perfect STEM Lessons TEACHER: I’m trying to design a STEM lesson. I just don’t have a clear picture of what to do. I’ve heard that statement a time or two, and I work with teachers to try to answer it. Tesla Town teaches students about electricity system From nuclear power plants to solar powered homes, TCIPG’s free new iPad app, Tesla Town, allows young students to explore and learn about different energy sources used for electricity production today. “Most people don’t have a lot of information about where electricity comes from,” said Jana Sebestik, Assistant Director of STEM Curriculum Design for the Office for Mathematics, Science and Technology Education (MSTE) and co-creator of the app. “One of our goals is just to educate people about the various sources.”
