The holidays are over, the new year has begun, and science fair season will be here before you know it. This year, attract some serious attention and sneak in some hardcore STEM learning with these mind-bending magnet projects:. Get a close-up look at the mystery of magnetism!
Citizen Science CS as a term implies a great deal of approaches and scopes involving many different fields of science. The number of the relevant projects globally has been increased significantly in the recent years. Large scale ecological questions can be answered only through extended observation networks and CS projects can support this effort.
In geek terms, this means making things, breaking things, and DIYing things to the hilt. Have a suggestion for a project we've missed? Please share your thoughts in a comment below.
It's becoming a trend: Evangelical Christian institutions that try to do science inevitably demonstrate breathtaking inanity of their own. The latest victim is the Pawleys Island Christian Academy. Take a gander at the first place winner in biology. Using a rolled-up paper towel suspended between two glasses of water with Epsom Salts, the paper towel formed stalactites.
As part of this next phase of the project, pilots will be tasked with analyzing real-world astronomical data from the CoRoT telescope that was launched into outer space in late as part of its continued mission to discover extrasolar planets, or exoplanets. Your contributions will be incredibly valuable to scientists, as the amount of data collected by the telescope is vast and computers are not yet capable of analyzing such large volumes of information in a reasonable time frame. The collective power of many human brains is still the fastest and most accurate way to analyze all this data.
This is counterintuitive, I know, as my understanding is that most science fairs are voluntary affairs and are judged for prizes, not scored for grades in science class. But no, my 8 th grade general science class made entry into the science fair mandatory, and we were all to be graded. Five years later, when my perpetually overachieving younger brother came through the same class, he just did the same experiment that he submitted for his 6 th grade science fair where he measured the amount of mold that grew on different loaves of bread made with different sweeteners.

Each person has a right — and dare I say — a responsibility to tell their own story in agriculture. That story is different for a meat scientist in Pennsylvania, a seed salesman in Alberta, a rancher in Texas, a dairy woman in Michigan, a college student in Kansas — or a little person at a science fair. Life events are great places to humanize agriculture.

According to senior Brittany Wenger, programming computers to think for themselves in the name of science may change the face of cancer diagnosis. Using cloud technology to both share data and feed her program, Wenger's Google Science Fair project blends computer science and medicine to create a powerful resource for the medical community—and an inspiration for other young programmers. I am very excited that pathologists are interested in working with me to provide my project with more samples so that the success rate can improve.
