Because this week there is no People’s Scientist podcast episode, I was asked to share some details on what my life is like as a Scientist. People are often surprised when I tell them I am a Scientist. What do you picture when you hear the title, Scientist?

Why did you learn how to code? Or why are you learning how to code? I want to know your stories to why you decided to learn this super power. For me it was all about the freedom it brought. 💻💡
We won’t forget December 6, 1989, the day 14 women were killed by an anti-feminist just because they were studying engineering. #ecolepolytechnique

I've been playing with some linux function lately ( grep, cut, sed .. ) and this made me want to get back to read this book. I absolutely love linux and the freedoms it gives me !.

Just returned from another fun adventure in the PNW with my niece and great-nephew! The highlight was our trip into Portland to OMSI to see the Exquisite Creatures exhibit and do science-y stuff! We made lots of sweet memories to last us until the next visit. 💞
Do you have optional seating in your classroom and are any of those helping students strengthen their core?
Movement in the classroom is vital to help students get the wiggles out, stay focused , be comfy and interactive with their learning. Many seating options today are ergonomically designed to support physical health! Classrooms today are a long way away from the traditional seating I had growing up!
Students can be comfortable and strengthen their core with some of the seating available to classroom learning environments. They can choose from various seating options to learn.
Wobble stools are one terrific seating option and my students love them!
Some raise them to sit at the tall tables while others use them at the lowest height for feet on the floor and rocking motions.
I find myself using them and I have to admit doing my yoga sit-ups in my morning yoga routine is seeing a difference!
Consider yoga balls or wobble stools as alternate seating in your room if you are not sure where to start.
Let me know how your flexible seating is working for you
I’d love to hear!

This #StemSaturday post is dedicated to when the @csun_matabots visited the Club and had some #robotics fun with our members! 🤖⭐️ The kids have such a great time participating in #STEM activities and the results are absolutely priceless. 💙
LOVING the KiwiCo boxes for STEM learning as a supplement to our regular homeschool science. Aiden got to build her own circuit board to create a spin art machine! So awesome!

This week I was humbled as an educator. To start the week off I was observed and didn’t get the best results. I reflected on my lesson and feedback from my evaluator and honestly felt defeated. But, the next day I spoke to my evaluator and realized I was being too hard on myself and striving for PERFECTION. As an educator of gifted children I’m constantly preaching to them about learning from failure and to see “failures” as growth opportunities. Experiencing my breakdown over a not perfect evaluation has really opened my eyes and heart for my kiddos. I’ll be going into work Monday morning with a fresh perspective for sure!
hey. it’s been awhile. here’s a pic that facebook has already seen. 🥀

I think this may be the largest 3D print we’ve been able to successfully print! I’m thinking it’s because the base is still pretty small and the larger the footprint touching the base plate, the more trouble we have. This heart took 8 hours to print and still has lots of supports we need to clean up. This pic is straight off the plate. If I had known it was going to work I would have had my kiddos print it with red filament. 🤷♀️🤦♀️ #stem#makerbotreplicator #makerbotintheclassroom #makerbot#makerbotteacher #3dprintingintheclassroom #3dprinting#3dprintingteacher #stem#stemteacher #stemteachersofinstagram
What a great way for students to look at the past and the present. TheHiveAtSY 1st Gr Ss are learning about changes throughout time. They researched transportation in the past and present then used their #greenscreen with #DoInk app to compare! #greenscreentimemachine #goingbeyondclassroomwalls

It was fun drawing all the clipart for my “How to Catch an Elf” STEAM and comprehension unit! I’m excited to hear about all the fun kids have with this unit! Check out the link in my profile to see the unit. #howtocatchanelf#stem#steam#holidayactivities
FlipFact #158: Have you ever seen an animal that's almost entirely white, even though they're typically much more colorful? What you saw was certainly a beautiful natural oddity--but perhaps not the type you're thinking of.
If an animal suffers from leucism, the cells that would produce its natural color are unable to migrate into its skin, feathers, scales, cuticle, or hair. They end up looking like they're either entirely white, pale, or partially colored. Albinos, on the other hand, just have a problem with their melanocytes, the cells that produce melanin.
It's easy to mistake leucism for albinism in the wild. Fortunately, there's one simple way you can tell whether an animal is leucistic or an albino: Look at the eyes. Animals with leucism retain their normal eye color (or have blue eyes); meanwhile, because melanin affects eye color as well, albinos have red or pink eyes.

⭐️STAR U ALUMNI SATURDAY⭐️
Fahad is originally from Atlanta, Georgia and is a junior at UC Berkeley where he is currently studying applied math with a concentration in mathematical biology. He is passionate about the intersections between math, computer science, and biology and wants to utilize the tools from each of these fields in neuroscience research and healthcare in order to improve the lives of others. As a STAR U Scholar, Fahad worked with Dr. Vilas Menon on a project that examined the use of neural networks to uncover cell types through snRNA sequencing. He attended the Advancing Diversity in Aging Research Summit, the Gerontology Society of America this fall. In the future, Fahad envisions himself working in medicine and hopes to pursue an MD/PhD where he can combine his love for working with people and research in order to help the most vulnerable. At UC Berkeley, Fahad is active in a variety of activities and spends time playing IM basketball, pursuing health-tech solutions as a Fung Fellow, and tutoring elementary students in Oakland. Outside of the classroom, Fahad loves analyzing his favorite music albums, hiking around the Bay Area, and reading in his free time.
Must read для ребенка увлеченного рототехникой. .
Самая новогодняя и волшебная книжка - "Механический Дед Мороз". .
Сюжет и иллюстрации Свена Нурдквиста. Это уже говорит, что сюжет будет полон шуток и интересных идей. .
Но почему я ее рекомендую именно юным робототехникам? - В книге показан процесс создания "робота" от идеи до воплощения.
Выбор необходимых механизмов, материалов. Потом конструирование и тестирование. И финал - детальная проработка и презентация. .
В книге минимум технических терминов. Она очень лёгкая для понимания. И самая главная мысль, что волшебство мы создаем своими руками, если делаем это увелеченно и с добрыми побуждениями.
Сейчас книга есть в labirint.ru.
