Speaker at a PechaKucha Night event in Cluj-Napoca, Romania PechaKucha or Pecha Kucha (Japanese: ペチャクチャ, IPA: [petɕa ku͍̥tɕa],[1] chit-chat) is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called PechaKucha Nights (PKNs).[2][3] PechaKucha Night was devised in February 2003[4][5] by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Tokyo's Klein-Dytham Architecture (KDa), as a way to attract people to SuperDeluxe, their experimental event space in Roppongi, and to allow young designers to meet, show their work, and exchange ideas.[6] In 2004, a few cities in Europe began holding PKNs, the first of several hundred cities that have since launched similar events around the world.[7][8] As of May 2014, PKNs were held in over 700 cities worldwide.

To Attract More Girls to STEM, Bring More Storytelling to Science A student from High Technology High School in Lincroft, New Jersey CREDIT: Marissa Hazel Guest Post by Jonathan Olsen and Sarah Gross, teachers at High Technology High School in Lincroft, New Jersey Women and girls are historically underrepresented in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields and much has been written lately about why girls in school seem disinterested in these areas. As STEM becomes more important in our increasingly interconnected global society, it becomes even more imperative that educators find ways to encourage girls to participate in these fields.
