Learn Lua the Hard Way This series more or less mirrors the series of the same name for Python. It’s in my belief that the only way to learn the in and outs of a language is to learn by practice, and by that virtue, to practice as often as possible until you get the hang of the language. 1.

Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre The Engineering Subject Centre has produced a series of peer reviewed guides looking at various aspects of teaching and learning aimed at all those involved in engineering education. The guides have been written by Engineering Subject Centre staff, Associates and other experts in the field. Available in print, pdf and online formats, it is hoped that the online version will encourage participation and feedback from the community and that the resources will then develop interactively over time, ensuring that content is current and relevant.

New Tools for STEM Education April, 2015 Looking for new ways to make STEM education more engaging? From fundamental math and engineering to hands-on electronics and robotics, here are some new products that have been creating a stir in various STEM communities. MathGames A wonderful Math website for students that works on tablets, phones and desktops and tests over 1200 CCSS-aligned math skills. Made by Google, this free resource aims to teach a diverse audience with online exercises, mentors, events, and more. Engineer Your World: Engineering Design and Problem Solving for High Schools BackgroundEngineering design is not simply a useful tool for teaching science and mathematics content, but it is also a unique discipline in which science and mathematics are employed as tools for solving design challenges. With generous support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and in partnership with national organizations including NASA, the UTeachEngineering program at the University of Texas, Austin, has undertaken to demonstrate how rigorous engineering content can be deployed in secondary classrooms. Together, we have developed, piloted, refined, and deployed a year-long high school engineering course built on a foundation of solid research in the learning sciences, couched in the context of a rigorous engineering design process, and scaffolded to build engineering skills and habits of mind. We have also tested a variety of teacher preparation and support models that continue to evolve in response to the needs of our diverse teacher population.

6-8STEMresources Introduction: In recent years, the potential impact of global warming has been discussed widely by the scientific community. The majority of scientific reports suggest that the Earth will be soon facing climate change as the Earth increases in temperature. Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth. The increase in temperature may only be a few degrees, however, this slight change could have a profound impact on the Earth's polar ice caps. In the past 100 years, the Earth has warmed by one degree Fahrenheit. Integrated Design Engineering Activity Series IDEAS Engineering in the Middle School Classroom! IDEAS is the result of a project funded by The Engineering Foundation and organized by two of the worlds major engineering societies, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Our goal when soliciting project activities was to identify low-cost, "hands-on" engineering projects for use in middle schools math, science and technology classes. The announcement attracted over 60 entries from teachers, engineers, and concerned educational and professional groups.
