This is a piece for Delaware Today about young girls losing interest in science,technology, engineering and math related studies. The state’s schools and businesses are hoping to turn all this around. I love it when I come up with a few sketches that I still want to use for something and this was one of those times. A big thanks to AD Kelly Carter!
Yes, exactly. We need more girls going into science! Now there aren’t many Nobel Prizes being given to women, mostly because society pushed them away from science decades ago. But now that can all be changed, if more girls go into science.
“For months, Henry Markram and his team had been feeding data into a supercomputer, four vending-machine-size black boxes whirring quietly in the basement of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne. The boxes housed thousands of microchips, each programmed to act like a brain cell. Cables carried signals from microchip to microchip, just as cells do in a real brain.”READ MORE
This simple formula encapsulates something pure about the nature of spheres: ”It says that if you cut the surface of a sphere up into faces, edges and vertices, and let F be the number of faces, E the number of edges and V the number of vertices, you will always get V – E + F = 2,” said Colin Adams, a mathematician at Williams College in Massachusetts.”A very cool fact! The combinatorics of the vertices, edges and faces is capturing something very fundamental about the shape of a sphere,” Adams said. via The 11 Most Beautiful Mathematical Equations
A design and space science grand slam, behold these 1965 Looking Into Science textbook supplements. Originating in California, they are a memory of a time perhaps more creative and ambitious, in science and in art.
But as any reader of this or the many other blogs who feature science art knows, the talent evident in today’s works signal that there’s a wave of change coming. Sometimes, the best way to inspire the mind is to inspire the soul, for they never truly act alone.
