Featuring over fifty hands-on exhibits, games, crafts and activities, plus a series of presentations, Triangle SciTech Expo is a unique event that assembles scientists and technical professionals from universities, organizations and industry to engage visitors of all ages in the excitement of science and technology. I made some friends in school and welcomed the opportunity of studying together, eating together and attending sporting events together. With over ten different activities to choose from for elementary , middle , and high school students, educators are able to complement and enhance scientific concepts that are being taught in the classroom. That’s why I was so bummed when, during a recent mayoral debate focusing on downtown Aurora, it was mentioned the SciTech STEM Discovery Academy was closing. There will also be guest speakers from area technology companies as well as field trips to local businesses, museums, colleges and more!
I believe Virginia Tech is one of the greatest and most dynamic schools in the country and it should be known for its impressive programs of study and not marred by the senseless tragedy. Please come and meet Jerry and learn about him and the other amazing species that call the Conservators Center their home, like lions, tigers, caracals, lemurs and many others.
There is a common misconception that being an Ultrasound Tech is a simple procedure in which someone moves a wand-like device around the body, while images are magically captured on a screen. Her background is in high tech research and development, and she has worked at AT&T Labs in the US and UK , designing and prototyping cutting edge internet-connected wireless devices and systems. I also remember my favorite treat outside of the school dining program was going to a favorite hangout to get the best tasting chili dogs.
And Tesla’s success is only just beginning, despite the bumpy road – it’s the most shorted stock on Wall Street right now due to the fears that have always surrounded innovative tech in its infancy. I knew I would receive a fine education at any of the schools I had to choose from and since I really fell in love with Virginia Tech and the Blacksburg community I decided on attending there.
Because of his talent as a science communicator, he was named by The News & Observer as Tar Heel of the Week” in November 2004 and was awarded the 2011 Outstanding Informal Educator Award in Science, Mathematics, and Technology Education by the N.C. Science, Mathematics, Technology (SMT) Center. Peggy Gordon said her daughter McKenzie, now a second-grader at Fearn Elementary School in Aurora, who attended the academy from ages 3 to 5, not only benefited from taking part in advanced science experiments, she learned about all seven continents, was able to read at first grade level and was able to break down words for spelling.
