STEM Role Models Posters — In 7 Additional Languages

At the end of Nevertheless Season Two, we commissioned another four female illustrators from South America, Africa, the Middle East and China to produce a new set of posters. They were originally produced in English but we are delighted to say you can now download the complete set in 8 languages including French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese Brazilian, French Canadian, Simplified Chinese and English. The women featured serve as amazing role models in their fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (or STEM as it’s often referred to). You can listen to our episode on STEM Role Models here. We’d love you to download the posters and print them out for your school or workplace. By taking part, you’ll help raise awareness of their achievements, and hopefully inspire a new generation of girls and women in STEM.

A partir de una escuela Makerspace desde cero With the National Week of Making behind us, you might be ready to start a makerspace in your school -- but not know where to start. Will purchasing a costly 3D printer and the latest robotics kit ensure learning and maker success? What are some steps to starting a successful makerspace from scratch? Join a Pod — 500 Women Scientists What is a Pod? A 500 Women Scientists pod is a local chapter of the global 500 Women Scientists organization, a US federally tax-exempt 501(c)(3) (non-profit) organization. Pods are based in communities at a specific geographic location. Each pod name is be with a specific geographical location. Pods are open to the community and should not be associated with a particular institution or university. Pods are inclusive, not exclusive - we welcome all people who support our mission.

Women of Mathematics throughout Europe Thirteen women mathematicians portrayed in the original exhibition share their experience, thus serving as role models to stimulate young women scientists to trust their own strength. In presenting mathematics through women mathematicians’ perspectives and samples of their life stories, the curators hoped to highlight the human aspects of producing mathematics, making this discipline more tangible and therefore more accessible to outsiders or newcomers. The format, originally envisaged as a networking opportunity and for which the project was awarded with the Humboldt Alumni Award 2015, has indeed proved to reinforce collaborations and exchanges between mathematicians in different European countries, and stimulate dialogue around the themes of the exhibition between the general public and mathematicians.

“L’hymne des femmes” – The Russian Reader “March 8. I Choose Feminism.” Banner courtesy of the VK event page for the International Women’s Day rally in Petersburg Blending with Playlists In an effort to personalize learning more and more educators are turning to blended learning strategies. Before getting into the specifics of this post, it is important to flesh out each concept to ensure the efficacy of these shifts in pedagogy. When it comes to personalized learning, the “personal” should be emphasized. Putting all kids in front of a device and having them engaged in an adaptive learning tool all at the same time is not personalized. Here is my take on the strategy:

Assessing Learning in Maker Education On the surface, maker education looks like a lot of fun—young people tinker with materials, take things apart, make things light up, design and build things, etc. It’s messy, a little scattered. Dig a bit deeper, and those actions of play reveal quite a lot of thinking, processing, and meaning-making. Manipulating materials helps us understand how to best use them, how they can be altered or used differently; taking things apart or making things light up allows us to examine the made world, helps us form connections between what we see and what’s just below, and presents the possibility of discovering or creating something anew; and designing and building asks us to understand the products, structures, voices, and systems around us, find an opportunity to improve or change, test our assumptions, and more. Along the way, students learn to use scissors, screwdrivers, software, sewing needles, and saws.
