    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...

    The science behind consumer DNA testing

    There are countless genes involved even in determining something as simple as ear shape and size.

    “There are genes that determine whether your earwax is wet or dry, whether your earlobes are attached or detached, and how big of a ridge you have on the outside of your ear,” said Tina Hesman Saey, a Molecular Biology Senior Writer at Science News.

    “Ears are really complex,”...
