These Kids Are Solving The World’s Problems With Their STEM Skills

john rambo

In a 2018 review by the National Science Board, on international assessment tests, 15-year-olds in the US scored below the global average in mathematics but have science scores at or slightly above the worldwide average. And according to Girls who code, 74% of middle school girls express an interest in engineering, science, and math. Still, only 0.3% choose computer science as a major in college.

In May 2020, twenty semifinalist teams with students aged four to 16, participated in a digital version of First LEGO League’s Global Innovation Awards. This year’s challenge was to identify a problem in the students’ community and identify a unique solution using Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) skills to make their community a better place to live.

What’s Next For Technology-Driven Ventures In Turbulent Times

john rambo

Back in 1995, I had the opportunity to sit in on the first internet-based video telecast, put on by IBM between its New York and San Diego offices. The images were herky-jerky and the sound quality was so-so, but from that moment on, the world began to change in interesting ways, and thousands of new business ideas were sprung. Nowadays, the entire world is being run via video teleconferencing.

The experiences we are collectively having via videoconferencing may be paving the way for the next generation of business models as well. Tomorrow’s ventures may be built upon the “zoomification” of work, education and training, as explained by Lars Sudmann, former CFO of Procter & Gamble Belgium and now innovation leadership and board advisor to organizations such as The Conference Board. Expect to see, for example, “a ‘Zoom’ for university degrees, corporate training and next-level

World-first research led by Monash University could hold the key to better monitoring and treatment of lung disease associated with cystic fibrosis (CF) – a condition thousands of people are diagnosed with each year.

Using X-ray velocimetry (XV), the multi-disciplinary collaboration of physicists, engineers, biomedical engineers and clinicians was able to measure the dynamics of airflow through the lungs during the course of a natural breathing cycle, and measures the presentations of CF lung disease.

The research team, led by Dr. Freda Werdiger from Monash University’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, was able to pinpoint the exact locations of abnormal airflow within lungs

Argentina counts on new satellite technology to guard forests day and night

john rambo

BUENOS AIRES (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Argentina plans to put into orbit a satellite with new precision technology in the coming days, to monitor felling of its native forests round the clock and accurately measure forest carbon stocks in a bid to help curb climate change, scientists said.

The SAOCOM 1B satellite, manufactured in the South American country, is due to be launched between July 25 and 30 from Cape Canaveral in Florida, managed by experts from Argentina’s National Commission for Space Activities (CONAE).

The satellite, equipped with the latest technology, represents a huge leap from those that use optical sensors.

SAOCOM 1B’s main Earth observation instrument is a radar that works with microwaves in the electromagnetic L-band space, providing information 24/7 about what it can see: soil moisture, crops, forest structure and changes in glaciers.

“There is only one similar satellite developed by the Japanese space agency,” Laura Frulla,
