Cubelets: Modular Robot Toy-Kit Cubelets is the name of the very first product of “Modular Robotics” – a spin-off from the famous “robot”-Carnegie Mellon University. It is a kit of free combinable, small robot modules. The website goes: By combining sensor, logic and actuator blocks, young kids can create simple reconfigurable robots that exhibit surprisingly complex.

Service-learning Service learning is a method of teaching that combines classroom instruction with meaningful community service. This form of learning emphasizes critical thinking and personal reflection while encouraging a heightened sense of community, civic engagement, and personal responsibility. The Community Service Act of 1990, which authorized the Learn and Serve America grant program, defines service learning as: Service learning offers students immediate opportunities to apply classroom learning to support or enhance the work of local agencies that often exist to effect positive change in the community.[2] The National Youth Leadership Council defines service learning as "a philosophy, pedagogy, and model for community development that is used as an instructional strategy to meet learning goals and/or content standards."

Babe Ruth: Rare and Unpublished Photos In April 1947, the most famous and, arguably, most beloved ballplayer of all-time was honored at Yankee Stadium on “Babe Ruth Day.” Sixty-thousand fans filled The House That Ruth Built to pay tribute to a player who, even then, had already transcended the sport and become not merely a national icon, but an international star — a man whose eye-popping numbers (714 career home runs, more than 2,800 hits … a .342 lifetime batting average, fer chrissake!) and larger-than-life personality captivated grown-ups and kids, alike. Here, 65 years after Ruth’s Aug. 16, 1948, death, LIFE.com presents pictures made by photographer Ralph Morse — including many photos that were never published in LIFE — from Babe Ruth Day at the old Yankee Stadium, as well as from the Babe’s last public appearance a year later, in June 1948, mere months before he died.
