Eight hands-on activities engage students in practical experiences that demonstrate how STEM concepts apply in the real world. Starting on January 16th, 2018, Hess Corporation is donating 1,000 FREE 2017 STEM kits for classrooms early next year.
This year’s flu season promises to be an extended one. Let students explore microbes that impact our health (e.g., bacteria, fungi, protists and viruses), and learn that microbes play key roles in the lives of humans, sometimes causing disease.
November is National Diabetes Month. Join Wade Haaland, PhD, as he explains the basics of homeostasis in the human body, with particular emphasis on the relationship between homeostasis and diabetes.
A Storm Named "Yolanda"
Engage your students with a fictional story, based on events that occurred before, during and after Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) made landfall in Tacloban City, The Philippines. Follow up with STEM activities from Operation Rescue, in which teams plan and mount a simulated aid mission to provide supplies and prevent infectious disease after the storm has passed.
