Sending Students “Back to Space” with Simulated NASA Mission Scenarios

2019-11-05T10:18:17-06:00

Sending Students "Back to Space" with Simulated NASA Mission Scenarios This month, we’re putting students in the seats at NASA – virtually, that is, at least for now. In partnership with Back to Space, a transmedia organization that aims to ignite curiosity and positivity for science and technology through digital media content, we’re launching a special Back to Space enrichment to mark National STEM/STEAM day on November 8. At our event, students will tackle many of the real challenges NASA scientists faced during the Apollo Space Missions, using our hallmark format: hands-on STEAM challenges grounded by a story to contextualize [...]

Using Stories to Share STEAM: Transcending Barriers with our Hands-On Enrichment A beloved story just may be the key to taking STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) fields to new places, or at least, that’s what we found on a recent visit to Saida, Lebanon.  And at NuMinds, taking STEAM to new frontiers is the plan: we want to ignite intense curiosity in students of all backgrounds to explore new technologies and cultivate the critical thinking and empathy skills that will equip them for the jobs of the future.  A New Challenge While in Saida, Justin Vawter, NuMinds Co-Founder, [...]

NuMinds Builds 21st Century Thinkers In the industry write-up below, NuMinds Business Director for Latin America Tarek Hamdan addresses a growing consensus that the rapidly evolving workforce demands not just newer, sharper "hard skills," but a re-emphasis and integration of those underestimated "soft skills." In a world buzzing with concepts like "AI" and "machine learning" we can forget that our greatest asset is often what makes us most human: our emotional intelligence (EQ), empathy, and ability to adapt and innovate beyond known rules and structures. This is no secret to those on the front edge of education research, or to [...]

B3 Bots Beginning Elementary Robotics (offered in North Dallas)       “A robot (also called a droid) is a machine —especially one programmable by a computer— capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically. Robots can be guided by an external control device or the control may be embedded within. Robots may be constructed to take on human form but most robots are machines designed to perform a task with no regard to how they look.” - Wikipedia     Is there anything cooler than seeing your own kid build a robot? How about being able to see [...]
