The role of academic research in forestry is essential to ensuring the sustainability of forests. Advancements in research can help land owners make sustainable forest management decisions; it plays an increasingly important role in how forest land owners manage their land, both as a natural climate solution and for their livelihoods. International Paper recognizes the important role of this research and has taken action by offering $500,000 in academic research grants since 2019.
As a part of Engineers Week, Rockwell Automation and Cedar Point launched a series of five youth-focused videos called, “It’s Not Magic, It’s Science!” The first video featuring attractions at Cedar Point, a 364-acre amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio, launched on social media this week.
Hosted by STEM influencer Jay Flores, the videos share real-life examples of science, technology, engineering and math in action. Each video includes three parts: an experiment, an explanation of the science behind the experiment, and an application of the same concept in a park attraction.
These are the subjects that keep the world turning. But STEM goes beyond classroom subjects or careers. It's a way of thinking about the world.
Fuel a cultural shift around STEM teaching and learning by integrating innovative (and no-cost!) digital content into the classroom anytime and anywhere with a diverse array of resources from Discovery Education and industry leading partners.
Rockwell Automation and FANUC America recently came together to create accelerated work-and-learn apprenticeship programs preparing workers for jobs in advanced manufacturing, robotics, and automation.
“Our number one goal is to help create a worker pipeline that will not only help people increase their skills and future earning potential, but to help manufacturers achieve their production goals and maintain a thriving economy,” said Paul Aiello, director of education, FANUC America.
How do we rebuild the energy and momentum of the youth-led climate movement in 2019? Educate girls around the world and empower them. Give them inspiration and possibilities.
Supporting girls' education is one of the most powerful things we can do to solve climate change, says Christina Lowery, CEO of Girl Rising, an organization dedicated to changing the way the world values girls and their education.
Students and teachers were forced to adapt to online learning this past year. The pivot gave them a chance to rethink how we teach - and how we learn.
Education was one of the pandemic’s first casualties. When schools closed overnight, students and teachers switched to virtual classrooms—a massive social experiment that hasn’t been easy on anyone. But it also revealed opportunities to rethink the ways in which we teach and what is most valuable in education.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and many schools moved classes online, teachers rapidly had to adjust to remote instruction. One of the biggest challenges for high school science teachers has been finding ways to transfer labs to a virtual space.
The longer the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact communities around the world, the more we are discovering that it is changing even the most familiar aspects of daily life. This impact has been especially noticeable in the growing influence of digitization across many areas, yet nowhere is it perhaps more evident than in the sphere of education, following the extended suspension of in-person learning in many countries across the world.
