    The Latimer Heights Summer 2020 Internship Experience

    The Latimer Heights Summer 2020 Internship Experience

    The Latimer Heights Specialist Internship experience was a unique one. It allowed for me to both learn and review coding in JavaScript as well as learn more about coding in Python. We were assigned projects which allowed us to strengthen certain points in coding generally. At the start of the program when I had looked over the program, I knew we would be doing coding, which is one of my fields of expertise, due to my 3 years being in CTE Web Design. I had two friends that I could bounce ideas off of in case we didn’t understand something, or needed clarification. So we could always help each other and we worked together throughout the internship.

    Adventures in Education

    I’m just getting started here on Vocal and I was checking out some of the writers. I came across an article by AUTUMN GRAVES titled, I Wish More of My Teachers Had Said "I Don't Know”.

    Corking the gender gap

    Corking the gender gap

    For years stereotypes have existed within the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) sectors. Perhaps this is the primary reason why the number of women in the industry is still at such a low level. Sadly, despite the stereotype now being incredibly outdated, its presence still remains.

    Teaching: Making Magic Real

    Teaching: Making Magic Real

    As a student in science class, I have found my experiences with some teachers to be less than satisfactory. It seems, at times, that, though teachers have a general understanding of the basics of how to teach, there are certain times when their teaching goals aren’t quite compatible with their methods.

    Are Grades Hurting Your Education?

    Are Grades Hurting Your Education?

    As an undergraduate STEM student, I am all too familiar with the feeling of dread that accompanies the return of graded exams. The pit in your stomach grows as you peek at the red markings, afraid of what might be in store. The anxiety surrounding graded school work can be overwhelming and paralyzing, especially when grades are seen as the currency of academic success. From medical schools and graduate schools to parents and peers, the leading discourse is that maintaining a high GPA is imperative. To many, a motivated, successful student is dependent upon the promised reward of a high grade. But are grades actually helping us learn?

    Difference Between Left Brain and Right Brain

    Difference Between Left Brain and Right Brain

    Do you ever amaze to know that about 90 % of people are right-handed and the rest of them are lefties? Science says this is all genetic however for me, I guess it is your choice that you make when you hold the pencil for the first time. But not just writing, those who are lefties, does everything with their left hand and righties with their right hand.

    Synthesis for STEM-focused Research

    Synthesis for STEM-focused Research

    Synthesizing STEM research can be a very difficult process for many educators. As with any type of research, we know that it takes time and often requires school teachers and administrators be to strategic in reading and interpreting many texts. Although it may be a difficult process, it works best at preparing teachers to learn and incorporate STEM in the classroom. I have listed some common themes around STEM education as well as the research that binds them together.

    Chronicles of a Research Intern #1

    Chronicles of a Research Intern #1

    Okay, brief introduction of myself. I study maths and physics at uni and just finished first year with an average of 1st. Pretty good taking into account I'm an international student with English as a Second Language. I could have done better but I'm proud of myself. But leaving the course apart, I'm here to write about my first experience as a research intern.
