Scientific discovery has a long history; each new breakthrough has built on the work of countless individuals across years, decades, or even centuries. Many of the people who contributed to developments in science and technology were women.
K–12 students are invited to give engineering a try with the 2023 Engineering Challenge from Science Buddies. In the challenge, students use their problem-solving skills to design, build, and test contraptions, using simple materials. This year students are invited to make a device out of paper, string, tape, and paper clips to pick up a ping-pong ball and return it to a start line.
With the widespread integration of interactive technologies and persistent noise pollution, students and teachers are in distracting and often uncomfortable environments to learn and teach. In a recent survey by Logitech and Education Week, 74% of teachers agreed that students’ level of physical comfort while using educational technology impacts their level of engagement in learning “some” or “a lot.” Research shows that when educators are equipped with the right tools, student engagement and learning outcomes can increase. Join Logitech, edWeb, and CoSN to learn practical and creative edtech strategies and actionable tips to overcome today’s classroom challenges.
Discovery Education’sMystery Science inspires K–5 students to stay curious. Video-based, open-and-go core and mini lessons are driven by questions from real students, who guide the exploration of the world around them and inspire curiosity.
