    Acai berries could transform this wasteland

    Urban growth in the Amazon is often unsupervised, unregulated, and organic, which leads to irregular housing, lack of infrastructure, and the use of improper materials for construction. These irregular housing communities are called favelas, and are constructed of concrete, bricks, steel bars, sand, and rock. In São Paolo and other regions of Brazil, a lack of resources and poverty has...

    Virtual field trips bring New York City museum to students around the world

    For many students, going on a field trip is a school memory they will look back on for years. Getting out of the classroom and exploring a new place is exciting and offers a great chance for hands-on learning.

    But not all students are given this opportunity. With limited school budgets, field trips aren’t always possible.

    New York City's Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum...

    STEM Activities: Radio waves, robots, and macro-invertebrates

    By S.C. Stuart

    It was their first visit to the USA, for most of the 24 young Broadcom MASTERS International delegates. Even for the few who had visited before, or grown up here, it was definitely their first time inside the electrical engineering laboratory at top university Carnegie Mellon — our first stop in a packed week of Intel ISEF-related activities.

    But as soon as they were...

    How a ‘STEM Quartet’ offers this scientist multiple mindsets

    Scientists sometimes have intersecting interests. Some may pursue peripheral fields like science communication or journalism, while others write poetry or enjoy the connections between art and science.

    Cindy Wang (Intel STS 2006) is a pharmaceutical consultant for L.E.K. Consulting. Previously, she researched biosensors for bacterial molecules. When she is not working, Cindy enjoys...
