  • Flipping with Short Lab Videos Can Help Students Learn in Science Courses

    Flipping a science course, by having students watch videos first to learn basic concepts and step-by-step procedures for doing lab work, can improve the outcomes. That's the finding of an experiment run at DeSales and Clemson Universities in a research project sponsored by a journal publisher that produces such videos. The project was undertaken by TERC, a nonprofit STEM education research and development organization, on behalf of the Journal of Visualized Experiments. 01/31/2018 Read More

  • STEM Students Create Health-Related Products in 20-Hour 'Inventathon'

    In a recent "inventathon" that took place at the Houston Community College Advanced Manufacturing Center, hundreds of students competed to design and create health-related products. After 20 hours of effort, a team of four middle and high schoolers swept the competition (and won $500) with their invention: the AquaWheel, a 3D-printed device that uses the rolling motion of a wheel to power an internal UV light to purify water. The idea was to help people in developing countries who have to walk many miles to get water for drinking and cooking. 01/29/2018 Read More

  • Study: Personalized Text Messages Boost STEM Student Persistence

    In a randomized trial this past summer, community college students in STEM fields who received personalized text message "nudges" to keep them on track stayed in school at a rate 10 percentage points higher than those who did not receive nudges. The study, a joint effort by Jobs for the Future and Persistence Plus, followed about 2,000 students at four U.S. community colleges to gauge the impact of text message communications on college completion and student success. 01/29/2018 Read More
