2021 STEM News Vol 10 Issue 2

Math is a field that is dominated by men, yet young boys and girls seem to be no different in math ability. Research shows that when boys and girls as old as 10 do math, their patterns of brain activity are indistinguishable. The finding is the latest challenge to the idea that math is harder for girls. We present articles with information to encourage discussion on this theory.

2021 STEM News Vol 10 Issue 1

Some of the jobs slated for eventual transformation from manual to robotics include those occupied by persons with basic education and minimal capability to be retrained for a more “tech content” positions. The jobs most likely to be disrupted by automation will be roles in customer service, office and administration, but other cognitive kinds of work will be created such as robot monitoring professionals, data scientists, automation spe-cialists, and content curators.

2020 STEM NEWS Vol 9 Issue 4

The coronavirus impact touched all of the resources we use to produce our newsletters just as it impacted your lives, business, job, and education operations. Predictions of relationships between coronavirus, immigration, and STEM are being validated by documented impacts on education, public health, and global economies. Our supporters and content contributors have been teleworking, furloughed, or pre-occupied with personal trauma since early this year. Despite these trials, we were able to complete our work for this issue with only a few weeks delay. It includes comments from four Deans of Engineering on our topic as well as for the former Surgeon General of the United States. We believe the articles provide a fair sampling of how the pandemic impacted the economy and higher education.

2020 STEM NEWS Vol 9 Issue 3

Renewables cannot be addressed without consideration of climate change and climate change is the defining issue of our time. From shifting weather patterns that threaten food production, to rising sea levels that increase the risk of coastal erosion and catastrophic flooding, the impacts of climate change are global in scope. Among developments featured in this issue are: * Storage of Renewable Energy * New Solar Energy Venture * University Students Pushing Energy and Climate Research Accelerating deployment of renewables across the electricity value chain offers unique opportunities to revisit grid infrastructure and manage household energy usage. As part of this effort, digital solutions for forecasting renewable energy output, optimizing grid integration benefits, and influencing smart home investments have been developed and are now widespread.

2020 STEM NEWS Vol 9 Issue 2

About This Issue – Should Science and Math Teaching Change?, Vol 9, Issue 2 The process of evolution makes it incumbent that we give life to new thought as well as the traditional pedagogics of mathematics and the sciences. The teaching of science should be like science where new fields of wonder and discovery are planted in the minds of students and flourish under the guidance of stewards pledged to broaden the understanding for all students. It’s an imperative because our future warrants it, truth sanctions it, and our children deserve it. Our issue (Volume 9, Issue 2) contains perspectives from a sampling of educators and professionals from three continents on our topic as food for thought for those in charge of classrooms and lecture halls filled with students who are our hope for tomorrow. Let’s keep the discussion moving ahead.

2020 STEM NEWS Vol 9 Issue 1

About This Issue – Aerospace & Aviation, Vol 9, Issue 1 What we see in aviation and aerospace today are industries in need to recover from a heritage of higher education and hiring practices that ignored women and minorities as employees. When NASA formed in 1958, the primary aeronautics and aviation industries were loath to hire minorities or women into engineering or science positions or even accept Blacks and women as interns or co-op students. Today’s climate in the market will continue to shift providing challenges and opportunities for equity in gender and race diversity. This change is driven simply by demographics and the upswing in commercial space endeavors pushing aviation and aerospace to greater heights of service and aircraft design. In this issue, we offer articles encouraging discussions that describe emerging aviation and aerospace science and projection of the impact participation of women and minorities offer for technical advancement to expand diversity for improved reliability and productivity.
