Combine this concrete act of control over physical objects activity with the abstract power of programming – show students how to make those lights blink in response to the sounds, make the sensors guide the motors. Apply this combination of software and hardware hacking to measuring the radiation levels near Fukushima and aggregating radiation data, a task that the Japanese government apparently failed to do for months. Now you are talking about engaged students. Ariel Simons uses the inexpensive Arduino open source hardware platform to bring high school students together with coding, circuitry, citizen science. My own curiosity introduced me to Arduino recently.

It’s not the end of the world if you utilize the ol ‘red pen mentality’ and regularly critique others. But it’s not a very helpful thing to do. Especially in a school.

Ever since tantalizing hints of the Higgs turned up in December at the Large Hadron Collider, scientists there have been busily analyzing the results of their energetic particle collisions to further refine their search. “The bottom line though is now clear: There’s something there which looks like a Higgs is supposed to look,” wrote mathematician Peter Woit on his blog, Not Even Wrong.
