Today i read a story about an anthropologist who proposed a game to the kids in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the kids that who ever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that as one could have had all the fruits for himself they said: UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?

While having a somewhat narrow focus, a STEM scholarship can be available for students in many different fields be it education, electrical engineering, genetics and many more. Some of these programs are provided by national foundations such as the National Science Foundation while others are awarded at a more regional or local level, perhaps through individual colleges. Students who are entering any field which is related to a STEM program should absolutely consider what their financial assistance options are, looking carefully for STEM scholarships which will help them pay for their education. While there are many programs through a STEM scholarship program; available competition is normally going to be fairly high and applicants are going to be going up against other students in fields that are the same as their own.

  • How Everyday Things Are Made  If you've ever wondered how things are made - products like candy, cars, airplanes, or bottles - or if you've been interested in manufacturing processes, like forging, casting, or injection molding, then you've come to the right place.  AIM has developed an introductory website for kids and adults showing how various items are made. It covers over 40 different products and manufacturing processes, and includes almost 4 hours of manufacturing video. It is targeted towards non-engineers and engineers alike. Think of it as your own private online factory tour, or a virtual factory tour, if you wish.  We are able to cover only a small number of products and processes, but we believe it will give you a good introduction to the world of manufacturing.
