Telecommuting / Remote Work Stuff
PhysicsGirl Diana Cowern visits YouTube to find out what software engineers really do. NOTE: ForCarol.com College Scholarship recipient, Inyoung, now works at YouTube TV. 🙂 As Diana explains: “I left a physics job to do software engineering. Was it worth it? What do software engineers actually do? Software engineers and programmers code everything from virtual […]
The folks at CNET spent some time living with the Sony Aibo Robot Dog. How did it all work out? Watch this video to find out. Go here for a lot more information on Aibo. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) students can learn how to design robots that can help people feel wanted, loved, […]
STEM student Sofia Mehmood gives a terrific TED Talk on Biomedical Engineering. In this talk Sofia introduces the audience to biology, cell organelles, stem cells, synthetic biology, cancer stem cells, DNA, and more. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) students will be looking solving and researching the biomedical engineering questions that Sofia introduces here. Enjoy! 🙂 […]
Sometimes in your everyday life you may need to know how to solve, or at least understand, the Fourier Series. WHAT? Well, if you are an engineer or scientist anyway. In FACT, I did my Master’s Thesis on the “Coherent Optical Determination of the Leaf Angle Distribution of Corn” (Google it!) and guess what I […]
U.C. Berkeley’s Hybrid Robotics Lab has outfitted Cassie the Robot with Hovershoes. Cassie can now skate around campus, very cool! 🙂 To learn more, go to this IEEE Spectrum article on this research project. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) rocks! Geek On!
Researchers at the University of Washington and Facebook present a way to animate a single photo using artificial intelligence and augmented reality. Find out more about their research here: https://grail.cs.washington.edu/projects/wakeup/ VERY cool stuff! Gotta love STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Geek On!
Fiction: “Subterranean” by James Rollins describes a very scary world of monsters beneath Antarctica. It is definitely a work of fiction. Fact: In the real world, Dr. Priscu and his team of researchers from Montana State University actually DID discover life under the Antarctic Ice Sheet. Here is a news clip: “An expedition led by […]
Digit is an autonomous robot that sits in an autonomous vehicle. Once the destination is reached, your house for example, Digit finishes the delivery by getting out of the car and dropping the package off at your door. Very cool stuff! Go here for more information on Digit. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) students […]
Quantum Physics is super easy….not! Check out this very interesting TED Talk video where Dr. Shohini Ghose, Professor of Astrophysics at Wilfrid Laurier University, makes quantum physics and quantum computing interesting and fun. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) students can study Quantum Physics then design and implement a quantum computer…..and change the world! Geek […]
Here is a a very cool introduction to 5G for your smartphones from the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). FYI….my Masters degree (University of Kansas) is in “Microwave Communication Theory” soooooo, I love this stuff. For those students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), this is a VERY interesting field to […]
Check out this video on “Doggo” a four-legged robot built by STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) students at Stanford University. Go here to learn a lot more about the Doggo project including how YOU can get involved in this open source project. Geek On!
Dr. Jedidah Isler has a PhD from Yale University in Astrophysics and is currently Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Dartmouth College. Here is Dr. Isler’s TED Talk video discussing her love of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) and how students interested in STEM can pursue their passion, no matter the obstacles. For […]
