Just sharing one of the resources that was recently sent to me by my principal. I just began looking through some of the projects suggestions and thought that some of the projects could be tweaked to fit the specific needs of the grade levels or standard based content we teach at our school. I'm not sure if anyone is familiar with this site, but here it is: http://www.intel.com/about/corporateresponsibility/education/k12/STEMUni... If anyone has any other resources/STEM informational articles they would like to share, please post. I am really trying to read up on just about anything I can get my hands on about helping our school/students/teachers transition into this type of learning environment. Thanks! Sign in to vote!

Posted 7/16/2012 12:22pm Steve Wolf The "Science in the Movies" program just received TWC's "BEST STEM PRESENTATION OF THE YEAR" award. Science in the Movies is a live presentation performed in your school that shows students and teachers how over 100 key STEM concepts are used to make movie stunts and special effects. There is a great book aligned with the program, "The Secret Science Behind Movie Stunts & Special Effects." Schools using this program are seeing 30% spikes in physical science test scores. www.ScienceInTheMovies.com Sign in to vote!

Posted 11/14/2012 8:58am Elise BEducation Programs Manager for Friends of the National Zoo Hi all, I am the Education Programs Manager at Smithsonian's National Zoo. We have some resources that we are happy to share with teachers: Our website is full of great information for students interested in biology, life sciences, or conservation fields. Whether you want to find an article about our reproductive efforts with giant pandas, are interested learning in what it takes to become a wildlife geneticist, or want to read up on our species survival plans, we have cool and interesting stories to share. http://nationalzoo.si.edu/ We recently launched an app, available through iTunes, that lists nearly all of our animals A-Z (something you can't easily find on our website) and features our critter cams and short movies about our animals. You can also customize a tour of the Zoo. This is helpful if you're at the Zoo, but can be a great way to bring us to your classroom no matter where you are. We will continue add educational content to this app! We are very excited to see how teachers use the app, and I would welcome feedback from you if you do! Finally, our YouTube channel has everything from awww inducing video of cheetah cubs to interviews with our world renowned scientists. https://www.youtube.com/user/SmithsonianNZP Hope some of these are helpful to you and your students, Elise Sign in to vote!
