In a new article, our friends at +Edutopia share some tips related to mindfulness in Project Based Learning. Take a pause in your day and read the article, and share this with a friend.

Our friends at EdSurge provide some great evidence as to why opportunities in computer science need to be more readily available for girls and students of color.

Last week, President Obama announced his plan to give all students across the country a chance to learn computer science in their school. In addition to the $4 billion in funding for states and $100 million for training teachers, an additional $135 million in computer science funding will be available starting this year from the National Science Foundation and Corporation for National and Community Service. We applaud President Obama's initiative and welcome partnerships with teachers, schools, and school districts that want to leverage the power of Project Based Learning to teach computer science in our schools.

Like and Share this post if you support STEM and Computer Science opportunities for girls and students of color.
My five-year-old girl entered kindergarten this past fall, bringing me one of life’s greatest experiences: watching her explore her curiosities and creativity as she desires and develops skills that will last her a lifetime. Her energy and joy for learning is inspiring. Each morning before school
