Jaco  Space Education  There are many different careers related to space exploration apart from being an astronaut. For example, some people are engineers and help to build spacecrafts, while others might manage new programs, study and research other areas of outer space, or develop new technologies to help astronauts live in space.

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.

With a Master of Science degree in Educational and Instructional Technology, Brian carries the skills required to effectively plan, design, and implement technology programs and online learning environments.  He is heavily interested in eLearning, web applications, blogging, and social media.  In addition to this blog, Brian enjoys discovering and sharing cloud/web applications at
  3. Nuclear Fusion    While that may seem a small victory, it is the first time scientists have been able to replicate, to a small degree, the same process that the Sun and stars use to create their massive amounts of energy.
  4. Termes Robots    The TERMES robots can build towers, castles, and pyramids out of foam bricks, autonomously building themselves staircases to reach the higher levels and adding bricks wherever they are needed. In the future, similar robots could lay sandbags in advance of a flood, or perform simple construction tasks on Mars.

  11. Scholarships Grants.us   STEM scholarships (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) are something that students from a diverse background who are interested in certain technical fields. 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.
  12. Infographics  are everywhere, and we can’t get enough of them!By presenting information in a compact and creative format, infographics are able to quickly convey knowledge and engage its viewers. Most Infographics are fun to read and provide valuable information.Important to marketers, submitting unique infographics to the web that have to do with your niche, is one of the best things you can do for online marketing!

  16. How to Use Everyday Ingenuity to Solve Problems Big and Small   In WHY NOT? How to Use Everyday Ingenuity to Solve Problems Big and Small (Harvard Business School Press; October 24, 2003), Yale economics professor Barry Nalebuff and Yale law professor Ian Ayers reveal four simple tools that can help you dream up ingenious ideas for changing how we work, shop, live, and govern. While most of us equate innovation with high-tech breakthroughs discovered by rocket scientists, the truth is that many important ideas are the result of good, old-fashioned ingenuity—and everyday innovators like you and me. Think right on red, rolling luggage, spinning toothbrushes, or even prewashed lettuce—now a billion dollar business.
  17. The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the journal Science created the International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge to celebrate the grand tradition of science visualization and to encourage its continued growth. The spirit of the competition is to communicate science, engineering and technology for education and journalistic purposes.
