It looks as if IBM and Intel are both working on major breakthroughs in things like spectral imaging, supercomputers, and the new chips that use unbelievable materials, able to process with ultra-efficiency and at speeds unheard of. It looks as if science may crack an individual’s DNA sequencing for a cost of under $500. 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!
Join me in discussing software, hardware, tips, and techniques that help use technology to educate the future! Come learn how NOAA uses science, engineering and technology to discover, explore and document shipwrecks off North Carolina’s coast. It is a very challenging curriculum in school and demands a great deal of focus, concentration and dedication. In experiencing college it is important to have all these types of experiences as they really help shape you and give you a complete picture of the school and its history. My parents were so proud when I chose to study Engineering and decided on Virginia Tech.
Jerry” the Binturong and his friends from the Conservators Center will be onsite to educate you about a keystone species you may not know about. We were fascinated by what this tech meant for our futures, so I ended up routinely discussing it with my 20-something friends over coffee. This display will present robotics at the high school level, and will include an FTC First Robotics competition and how robots are made. Learn about our STEM programs, ongoing undergraduate research projects and our summer camps for middle school and high school girls.
Students and teachers select activities such as demonstrations, Tech Zone – corporate and higher education interactive exhibits, workshops and presentations by cutting-edge experts in science and technology through a conference style approach. The technology used in sonography is different than radiography; ionizing radiation is not used, but instead high frequency sound wave technology is used to capture images. I also attended Virginia Tech basketball games at Cassel Coliseum which kept me at the edge of my seat. I would never in my life have ever expected something as tragic as this occurring at such a wonderful school.
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.
