Harmony Science Academy Brownsville; title 1, tuition free, charter and only designated T-STEM academy in Brownsville AP& Physics class students conducted 4 experiments to master on measuring tools such as an electronic scale, caliber, digital and laser thermometers... Students also mastered on accuracy and precision. Fun way to teach basics and getting them ready for sensor based data collected experiments.#STEM4ALL #TSTEM

Hey guys doing some research here, my high school is looking to expand our STEM program. I am tasked with taking over the video gaming & app creation portion. Are there any good resources to help guide me?!?!? I have this school year to put everything together and present it to our administration. Any and all advice is welcomed and appreciated!!!

Students learn to calculate pH, but do they know why?

A video to explain how to use pH and why we use it to measure the strengths of acids and bases.

We do a Lunchtime Children's Engineering Challenge weekly with 1st and second graders and need some ideas on quick (15 minutes max) challenges that demonstrate chemical engineering and electrical engineering.  Hopefully,  only  s few simple household types of materials would be needed for the challenge.  Any ideas?

Salvador Dalí always thought of himself as a replacement for his older brother, who had died before the famous painter was born. Dalí’s theory is strengthened by the fact that his older brother had also been named Salvador. That’s creepy. We’re not certain if his art was a form of therapy, but it could explain some of his weird (and wonderful!) ideas. It is perhaps not surprising that double interpretations and images abound in Dali’s art.  Our new Illusions column in Scientific American: Mind, out this month, focuses on Dalí’s Doubles.  http://ow.ly/QSPMa See more of the the artistic repercussions @illusionchasers http://ow.ly/QSPGO 
Haunted by a deceased brother, whom he saw as a twin, the Spanish artist filled his work with double meanings
