Noospher Connect the Dots | STEM CAMP But first, they must embrace science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to build the skills that will serve as their tool set for the future. For that to happen, we must work together to ignite their curiosity and get them excited about STEM in their everyday lives. So we ask you to join us in connecting the dots between learning and life. Together, we can ignite the spark in students around the clock and around the world. While after-school learning and summer programs provide rich opportunities to keep students inspired beyond the classroom, we know that unequal access to these programs can contribute to disparities in student achievement. STEM Camp combines hands-on labs, engineering challenges, digital investigations, and more - all designed to immerse kids in the grand challenges of science set forth by the National Academy of Engineering.

PriceSniper : Comparez les prix sans interrompre votre shopping ! — Price Sniper About The third is community. We believe learning should be as rich and varied as the world you're learning about. So with our community we're building a kind of multimedia wonderland of learning, where videos, audio, usage, mnemonics, etymologies and much more bring your learning to life. We believe that every learner is partly a teacher, and we hope that once you get started, you'll soon be supplying little nuggets of wit and wisdom to help the rest of the community as they learn! Anyone can learn anything We believe that learning’s quite simple, and that there’s nothing that can’t be learned with the right help and enthusiasm. Together we are smarter Millions of people have learned what you want to learn. As you learn, you share your ideas to help others, just as you benefit all the time from the ideas other people have shared. This way, we all learn quicker and more effortlessly. Play works We’re at our most receptive when we’re at play. Your memory is a garden, not a storehouse

Strike Search - Torrent Search Engine I suppose I’ve been waiting to make this post for sometime. Source code for Strike Search is released here some of you might be aware that since Aurous was sued and shutdown I’ve been quite absent from maintaining a few of my projects. Strike being one of the most popular. I receive constant emails that the search page no longer works; this was done for good reason. While I did attempt to make Strike purely a meta data engine after the lawsuit, I felt too exposed even operating it. As you can see if just a teeny bit taxing on my server, so as of today I wanted to officially annouce that Strike will no longer focus on torrents, in fact I’ve decided to phase Strike into creating open source utilities that help every day life. This includes but is not limited to Remote desktopPowershellCMDTask ManagementSystem monitoring (health, heat, peformance)File browsing/downloading Even if you just want to extend functionality, we already have plugin support What about the api? Who is part of Strike?

group gifts and events, online money pots The Ultimate History Project - All About Us Alchemy - Virtual Reality storytelling SensorWake - Wake Up Happy with the Smell-Based Alarm Clock by Guillaume Rolland Risks and challenges We are very proud to be able to offer our product to backers on Kickstarter. But for us, it’s only the beginning. The most important thing for us is to make sure our community, especially our Kickstarter backers fully enjoy our product. We have already worked for two years to get our prototype up and running. However, it’s impossible to start a new enterprise without risk. But we’ve worked too hard to get where we are to slow down anytime soon. Because we want you to wake up happy. We’ll make sure to keep you updated, not only on the Kickstarter campaign, but also on our ideas and vision. We might also seek your advice and input from time to time, so you are welcome to join our community on social media if you’re willing to participate in this feedback. There’s no way to convey how grateful we are for your efforts, whether you back the project financially or simply send us your ideas. Thank you so much for your support! The SensorWake Team.
