STEM Reads for the Week

October 28, 2011

 

As October winds down, STEM continues to heat up across the nation! Here’s what’s on our radar this week:

Fewer African-Americans found participating in STEM jobs (via Atlanta Journal-Constitution/AP)

Thomas Friedman imagines a world where people study computer engineering instead of financial engineering (via New York Time Opinion)

AAUW working to make the link between STEM careers and economic success even clearer (via Huffington Post)

Girls Scouts and AT&T join together to help underprivileged girls access STEM opportunities  (via Girl Scouts/Sacramento Bee)

STEM advocate Jim Brazell give an interview on innovation in the field (via Science House Foundation)

And for your Halloween weekend, here’s some creepy-cool science projects you can do at home. Haven’t you always wanted to make a green-glowing Jack O’Lantern?
