Library and Information Science Articles and News is an initiative of Librarianship Studies & Information Technology blog to showcase the latest LIS news, articles, events, and updates for librarians, catalogers, metadata, archives, and knowledge professionals. This work has been supported by the National Science Foundation as well as the College of Arts & Sciences and the Provost’s Office. Some of these students are graduating seniors, and we will be sharing news here on their plans for next year. Scientists in Harvard Medical School have discovered a genetic mechanism which allows them to artificially age, and then rejuvenate laboratory mice. Science News, published since 1922, provides an approachable overview from all fields and applications of STEM. One of the safer sciences in terms of how much new knowledge is added is physical science.
Both Rachel Day (photo,left) and Rachael Glover (photo, right) plan to pursue interests in ecology and environmental science. Hence, those who are involved in the fields of computer science should take up post-graduate courses which would constantly let them keep abreast of the changing trends in the industry. Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you know by now that the sun and the moon will be the stars of the Great American Eclipse of 2017. Many of these courses will transfer back as credit towards your Ashland major in Biology.
This past year one of our environmental science courses used a new blog to share current news and research. A lecture presented by Dr. Allan M. Brandt, Kass Professor of the History of Medicine and Professor of the History of Science at Harvard University, was held on the AU campus March 29 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of an Interdisciplinary Science Course at Ashland University. It comes out weekly and is loaded with current up to the date news and flash items.
With generous funding from Regeneron, the Society has expanded the reach of Science News in High Schools to 4,000 additional public high schools and public charter schools. Five of those students had full-time jobs waiting for them at Charles River when they graduated this Spring, and one began a job this summer even though he will not graduate until December. Once, the greed of humans and the misuse of science reaches its epitome, all will be lost.
Your membership promotes scientific literacy and gives millions of students opportunities to fall in love with science. Dr. Jeff Weidenhamer , professor of chemistry, was selected for the Fulbright Specialists Program as an agricultural science specialist and spent six weeks this summer hosted by Charles Sturt University in New South Wales, Australia. These scholarship dollars are given by the State of Ohio to support Ohio high school students entering STEM college programs. We have supported 24 students so far and plan to provide additional scholarships for our incoming Fall 2014 class. What matters are the values and ideals that drive us, not just the who, what, when, and where of the news.
