Teaching and educating children if we know who we are dealing ? Where is the " I " of man ? What is the reason ? Calling himself the teacher should deal with these strategic questions ! So download your book ( in Russian only) .

Gift!
In the book " Verosofia and Verologia " answers to critical questions. How does the universe, what is the time, where is God? 20 years of

labor. Author's illustration. On links you can download a typographical version, and pass on both films.

Author Igor Romanovich Grigoriyantс publication does not pursue commercial and political goals .

In "Для Верософии" folder are fonts - this is important! Install them on your computer !
The print shop carry the entire folder " Verosofia and Verologia " (download the archive with Yandex Disk )! They know what to do about
this.

Hi, I'm John from the Creativity Hub. I am currently developing educational content and teacher support materials for the Extraordinaires Design Studio and I would love to get feedback from STEM teachers about their classroom experiences with any version of the Design Studio.

I have been a teacher, administrator, and professional development provider for over 25 years. I'm not trying to sell the product. (I have 0 marketing experience.)

If you have any feedback or comments about the Extraordinaires Design Studio, I'd love to talk to you or correspond via email, john@thecreativityhub.com. Thanks!

Your responses help researchers understand more about the role of Makerspaces in K-12 education. It will also help me complete my dissertation! Thank you for your time.

STEM is so big right now because those will be the types of jobs our kids will need to be prepared to do.

The earlier we get kids interested in stem, the more likely they are to purse that to do well in science and mathematics at school.

Fantastic App "STEM Islands. City of Light. Optics" #iOS #mac
Instead of studying the phenomena of nature in a classroom, a Physics Teacher and two students – a bright girl and a curious boy – set out on an amazing journey to various wondrous STEM Islands.
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/stem-islands.-city-light./id908898911?mt=8 "STEM Islands. City of Light" includes 9 learn-and-play sections:
• Sources of Light
• Light and Shadow
• Light Refraction
• Mirrors
• Light Reflection
• Lens
• Optical Devices

#Laser #GravitationalWave #Observatory Researchers Receive 2 Awards

Two prestigious awards in the sciences have been awarded to the designers and researchers of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), which recently directly detected gravitational-waves for the first time. The direct discovery of gravitational-waves “has in a single stroke and for the first time, validated Einstein’s theory of general relativity for very strong fields,” said Mats Carlsson of the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics in Norway.
