    WHEN: Tuesday, October 15, 4:00 - 5:15 PM

    REGION: Middle Tennessee

    WHERE: MTSU Tom Jackson Building, Murfreesboro

    COST: Free

    WHAT:  
    All students have the right to learn about science, technology, mathematics, and engineering in ways that are consequential and compelling to them. As research has increasingly shown that learning is centrally shaped by the interests and concerns of learners and their communities, relating STEM concepts and practices to the realities of students’ lives, generationally and culturally, is crucial. This panel will discuss why this shift in STEM learning is important from the perspective of students, communities, and society at large. Additionally, the panel will discuss what authenticity and meaningfulness looks like in STEM classrooms and other STEM learning environments enacting this ambitious vision, and how that might be different from traditional classrooms.

    We are hot off the heels of the 8th annual Clean Tech Competition, and while that mean a break for some, we are already looking ahead to next year, and the last thing we want is for any eligible students to miss out! This international research and design challenge for 15-18 year old pre-university students is a prestigious educational opportunity for young scientists wherever they may study! It challenges students to be as innovative as possible as they look to create a sustainable solution to our future.

    Competition Information

    Each year, the Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition encourages scientific understanding of real-world issues and the integration of environmentally responsible energy sources. The theme is different for each year, but the goals and guidelines are the same. 

    • Teams consist of 1-3 students, are assisted by a Team Leader (i.e. parent, teacher, or mentor), to develop a written proposal.
    • There is no entry fee.
    • First Round consists of written Paper Submissions
    • 10 Finalist Teams in each category are selected and given a $200 stipend to help them prepare a Prototype and presentation for the Finalist Event.
    • Finalists compete for the $10,000 grand prize in each category, and a ‘Continued Mentorship’ 
    • Official Competition website https://www.cstl.org/cleantech/

    How can your students get involved?

    To help bring the Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition to your country and schools, we ask that you share information about this opportunity with students, fellow educators, and parents. There is a wealth of knowledge on our website, including information on our past competitions. We will post flyers on our website you can post around to spread awareness, and our emails are perfect to forward to interested parties. Our blog is a cache of information from a different angle as well, so keep checking back for updates as they come!

     

    Our event grows every year, with 2019 seeing entrees from 40 different countries, and we had six of them represented in the finals! Attendees from Zimbabwe, China, the United States, Philippines, Singapore and Italy joined us in New York City to compete against their peers for the honor of Clean Tech Winner! We are incredibly proud of this list, and would be honored if students from your area would be able to join us this year.

     

    If you have any questions regarding the competition details, or how to incorporate the competition into your curriculum, please contact us at the information below. We look forward to having participants representing your region in the Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition both this year, and in the years to come!

    Epidemiology is a fundamental population science and tries to answer questions about health-related behaviors and outcomes in populations. Epidemiologists study how health and disease are distributed in populations and the factors that influence or determine those distributions. Why does a disease develop in some people and not others? Why are some people healthier than others? The premise underlying epidemiology is that disease and health-related factors are not randomly distributed in a population. Rather, each of us has certain characteristics, life situations and habits that predispose us, or do not predispose us, to states of health and illness.

    For most of us, science arrives in our lives packaged neatly as fact. But how did it get that way?

    Science is an active process of observation and investigation. Evidence: How Do We Know What We Know? examines that process, revealing the ways in which ideas and information become knowledge and understanding.

    a case study in human origins

    In this case study in human origins, we explore how scientific evidence is being used to shape our current understanding of ourselves: What makes us human—and how did we get this way?
