In the United States, about 20% of electricity comes from nuclear power. But applications of the power of the nucleus are so much more than electricity: from cutting-edge cancer therapies and food security to space travel and ancient discoveries, nuclear science helps build our world.

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to learning and teaching during this challenging academic year. In some parts of the world, students are learning from the classroom, but in other areas, schools are engaging in online learning or adopting a hybrid classroom and remote model.
Publicly supported HBCUs—TMCF’s member-schools—are the vehicle to change racial inequity.
This year has been historic in so many ways – a global pandemic, social unrest, and increased awareness of racial inequities and injustice. Many Americans want to help, but do not know what to do. Many have taken to the streets to join protests, but once those demonstrations are over, what will change? Where will opportunity emerge?

A project-based learning approach to teaching means connecting students to the real-world through thought-provoking activities designed to challenge and inspire by doing. It’s an effective way to introduce students to multiple subjects while helping them build critical thinking skills.
My parents immigrated to the U.S. from Mexico and moved to California, where I was born. They eventually settled in Brooklyn, New York, where they worked endless hours doing labor jobs to support me and my two younger sisters as we attended school. My parents may not have been fortunate enough to have a full education but they modeled the value of hard work and dedication to their family, as they wanted us to have all we needed for a successful future. Seeing how hard my parents worked I decided at young age that their efforts will not go to waste.

Within all living things exists a code building and outlining life. Deoxyribonucleic acid, more commonly referred to as DNA, builds our reality and has the power to solve some of the world’s most challenging problems. From understanding diseases like cancer or COVID-19 to medical breakthroughs identifying how our bodies work to improving food sustainability, the DNA double-helix builds a fascinating world of genomics that impacts our everyday lives, whether we know it or not.
Thinking about science class, many recall Bunsen burners, charts, and experiments. In the new digital learning age, fostering scientific inquiry through STEM studies means trying new things. Applying the logic of the scientific method to teaching kids requires empowering educators with ready-to-use resources and ideas that don’t require too much lift.
