S.T.E.A.M. Learning: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math Edtech Resources

Recently there have been a movement to include #artistic learning concepts in #STEM education. The hope that it will encourage more creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving. In this post I share an #edtech website or app for each #STEAM subject.
In honor of the STEAM learning philosophy every month or so I will share a collection of edtech resources, one for each of the STEAM subjects. S.T.E.A.M. stands for Science, Technology, Engineering...

Interested in NSA spying and Edward Snowden? I will just leave this here. I have only watched the first few minutes, but will definitely finish later when I have time.
In January 2013, film-maker Laura Poitras received an encrypted e-mail from a stranger who called himself Citizen Four. In it, he offered her inside information about illegal ...

I watched in on to last week I think it was. It's amazing what they went through it was just a bit short. Gripped me right from the start so didn't want it to end.

I have been singing this in my head on and off all morning after hearing the news. Still sad, but it brings a smile to my face.

RIP Leonard Nimoy. Thanks for all the inspiring work you made!

That puts a dampener on the day :(
The cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, told The New York Times.

The reviews said the wifi speeds at this hotel were really good. They weren't kidding.

Best Western on Mathilda Ave. in Sunnyvale. It's not a high class hotel,
but it does the job. Also, I am willing to overlook a lot for good wifi.


Thanks,
Aaron Newcomb

These oil tankers that come into Benicia for the refinery are massive. I had to use photosphere to get the whole thing in one picture and I was still pretty far away.

BLOG: Remembering Leonard Nimoy

Normally, I’m pretty good with words. At the moment, I’m not at my best, for reasons I hope are self evident. However, I’m going to do my best to remember someone who gave more to my life than he ever knew. I never got to know Leonard Nimoy the way my…
Mister Spock made it okay for me to be the weird kid who eventually grew into a slightly-less weird adult, but it was Leonard Nimoy who made Mister Spock live, and who made Star Trek possible.

Nice comparison chart on the Pi and various clones in this blog. I bought an Orange Pi to try out since it had integrated WiFi.
 
Just my point of view about all that clones of the Raspberry Pi and a comparison of 16 cards. The Raspberry Pi is unbeatable ;-)

The binaries aren't always compatible, but you don't have to compile from
source. There are images and package repositories available.

Always fresh here. I usually skip the fries because I am full after the burger. Breakfast isn't bad either.

This store does have a nice selection of gifts. I have been several times in the past few months, but am moving. On the day before my move, I bought four gifts, and asked if I could get them in different bags to give them, since all my gift supplies were packed. The clerk refused! How sad that saving a few pennies takes precedence over a small kindness.
