    The Hurricanes: Science and Society (HSS) team at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography (URI/GSO) is hosting FREE hurricane preparedness webinars in conjunction with Hurricane Preparedness Week and the 2019 Hurricane Awareness Tour (HAT). The HSS team is again partnering with NOAA’s National Hurricane Center (NHC) and Aircraft Operations Center (AOC) to provide webinars, for 4th through 6th grade classes, that will broadcast LIVE from the HAT. The webinars will last approximately 1 hour, and will allow your classes to learn about hurricanes and their potential impacts, connect with hurricane experts, see the planes used to investigate and understand hurricanes, learn about hurricane-related careers (including “hurricane hunters”), and ask questions in real time.

    On Monday, May 6, 2019, at 10am EDT, a webinar focused on Northeast hurricane science/history will take place in conjunction with the Quonset/North Kingstown, RI stop of the HAT.   

    On Thursday, May 9, at 10am EDT, a second webinar on hurricanes (but not focused on the Northeast) will be offered, in conjunction with the Charlotte, North Carolina, stop of the HAT.

    Schools/classes wanting to participate MUST REGISTER in advance.

    Register here: http://hurricanescience.org/resources/nhcwebinar/

    Please note, all webinars will be archived to the HSS website4th-6th grade webinars page, about 3-4 weeks after the HAT.

    Questions?  Please contact Holly Morin (holly_morin@uri.edu).

    We are seeking faculty members at local community colleges and middle and high school teachers in the Northeast, Metro North, Metro West, Boston, and Southeast STEM Nexus Networks to spend 6 weeks of the summer conducting research alongside undergraduate and graduate students in an NSF funded Research Experiences for Teachers program focused in engineering.

    Participants are not expected to be proficient in engineering disciplines as the program is interdisciplinary with a focus on training and providing resources for incorporating engineering concepts in your curriculum. Participants will gain experience working in a cleanroom as well as in faculty labs and through our program, we will work with the middle/high school teachers and the schools to assist in integration of engineering concepts into STEM curriculum. Something unique about our RET site is that we intend to continue to work with you even after the summer program is over. We intend to help initiate a community of STEM engineering within the STEM Nexus networks where teachers, community college faculty members, and administrators can continuously support each other with new lessons and integration plans. 

    The deadline for applications is Saturday, April 6, 2019 so that we can let teachers know prior to spring break if they have a position in our site. Our website has a lot of information: http://www.bu.edu/photonics-ret including the application process: http://www.bu.edu/photonics-ret/apply-today/. If you can post and distribute to community college faculty members and science teachers in the STEM Nexus networks, on social media, etc it would be helpful to encourage more participants to apply.

    Here is information on iRobot’s annual STEM teacher recognition contest.

    Please note- these are STUDENT submitted nominations! We want to hear from the students why they are nominating their favorite STEM teacher. We’ll read them all, and pick four to honor on field at Fenway (one from each grade cohort)

    We offer Professional Development with a TWIST!  

    By bringing tomorrow’s science into today’s classrooms, BioBuilder’s three-day professional development workshops will impact your understanding of biology and your approach to teaching.

    Co-taught by a practicing synthetic biologist and a high school teacher, our workshops combine classroom, laboratory, and design activities that are both accessible and inspiring.

    You’ll leave with ready-to-teach lessons that bring engineering into your biology classrooms, labs, or science clubs!

    BioBuilder Educational Foundation is offering Synthetic Biology Workshops for STEM teachers around the country this summer.  

    Please join us for a workshop at the BioBuilder Learning Lab in Cambridge, MA from August 6 - 8 (9 am - 4 pm daily).

    Register Now for early bird pricing available until April 1.

    I invite you to visit our website: BioBuilder

    Scholarships are available. Questions? Please contact Carla, Director of Operations, at carla@biobuilder.org

    Attend the Massachusetts Association of Biology Teachers Conference - Kick the Canned Lab to the Curb: Exploration, Innovation, and Rigorous Experimentation in the Classroom.   As you are aware, students learn best when they are given choices on how to investigate a scientific question.  Often this means they will blunder or fail to come up with data that makes sense to them. How can we help our students hone their scientific skills in this process?  Join our panel of speakers and workshops to find out! We hope to see you at the conference on Saturday, March 16th 2019 at Framingham State University.  Register today and join MABT or renew your membership.

    Giant Screen Film Molecules to the MAX! Now Streaming

    Video available on iTunes and Amazon Now

    Troy, NY (September 25, 2018) Molecules to the MAX!, an animated adventure aimed at exciting and educating kids about the world of atoms and molecules, is now available for streaming video from iTunes and Amazon. Originally released in Giant Screen and IMAX theaters, the film follows the mission of Oxy, a curious oxygen atom and her friends as they explore nanospace in a search for the secret of life.  Developed by a team of scientists, artists and animators at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), the film is scheduled for release to both streaming platforms on September 27.  For a sneak peek at the film trailer visit: www.moleculestothemax.com.

    Molecules to the MAX! was created by Rensselaer’s Molecularium® Project, an educational initiative designed to teach children about science in entertaining ways. In the film, you are transported to places no one can ever go – using state-of-the-art molecular simulations.  Kids learn about the basic atomic structures of everyday items, such as snowflakes, pennies and chewing gum, as they fly through nanospace aboard the Molecularium. Oxy, Captain of the ship, is dispatched from the Unified Field of Atoms on an expedition to discover the secret of life on Earth. Along with her crew – Hydra and Hydro, the curious hydrogen twins, and Mel, the uptight computer – they have many misadventures exploring the Earth's atmosphere, the cycle of water molecules through clouds, snowflakes and raindrops, and various common materials.

    “One of my favorite aspects of Molecules to the MAX! is getting kids really excited about science. Now that this film is even more readily accessible through streaming, families, teachers and kids can watch it at home on smart TVs, computers, and even mobile devices,” said Richard W. Siegel Ph.D, founding director of Rensselaer’s Nanotechnology Center and innovator behind the Molecularium Project.

    In addition to Molecules to the MAX!,  the Project recently launched My Molecularium, a fun, free molecule building game application, where students learn real science while they play. This fast-paced game challenges players to build a wide variety of fascinating molecules from water and vitamin C to caffeine and adrenalin. My Molecularium is available for free at the Apple App Store or Google Play today! Visit: http://molecularium.com/MyMolecularium.htm 

    Other available educational productions include NanoSpace®, winner of the Center for Digital Education 2013 Best of the Web award, a  free online amusement park, which includes more than 25 fun, interactive and educational games, short animated films and activities, and the Digital Dome film Molecularium – Riding Snowflakes, a  23-minute, award-winning show that introduced characters Oxy, Carbón, Hydra and Mel.

    Catering to parents, teachers and homeschoolers, free educator resources for grades K-4 and 5-8 are also available on the Molecularium Project website at www.molecularium.com.

    Introduce the STEM teachers in your district to an innovative NGSS-aligned program for grades 5-12 that uses the results of highway safety research to give students a hands-on understanding of core STEM concepts.

    The IIHS in the Classroom website is designed to help students explore the science behind what happens in a car crash — both to the car and to those inside it — and discover why some vehicles are safer than others.

    Developed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) together with award-winning science educator Griff Jones, Ph.D., the website features engaging, interactive resources to enhance lessons on key STEM concepts and practices.
