Bring STEM to life for students with zombies, rockets, celebrities, and more STEM to Story: Enthralling and Effective Lesson Plans for Grades 5-8 inspires learning through fun, engaging, and meaningful lesson plans that fuse hands-on discovery in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) with creative writing. The workshop activities within the book are the innovative result of a partnership between 826 National's proven creative writing model and Time Warner Cable's Connect a Million Minds, an initiative dedicated to connecting young people to the wonders of STEM through hands-on learning. Authentically aligned with both the Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards, this book provides teachers, after-school and out-of-school providers, and parents with field-tested lessons, workshops, and projects designed by professionals in each field. Including reflective observations by arts and science celebrities like Jon Scieszka, Mayim Bialik, and Steve Hockensmith, lessons feature bonus activities, fun facts, and teaching points for instructors at every level. These quirky, exploratory lessons will effectively awaken student imaginations and passions for both STEM and creative writing, encourage identity with scientific endeavors, and make both science and writing fun. Grades five through eight is the critical period for engaging students in STEM, and this book is designed specifically to appeal to – and engage – this age group. The guided curricula fosters hands-on discovery, deep learning, and rich inquiry skills while feeling more like play than school, and has proven popular and effective with both students and teachers. Awaken student imagination and get them excited about STEM Fuse creative writing with STEM using hands-on activities Make scientific principles relevant to students' lives Inspire students to explore STEM topics further The demand for STEM workers is closely linked to global competitiveness, and a successful future in STEM depends upon an early introduction to the scientific mindset. The challenge for teachers is to break through students' preconceptions of STEM fields as "hard" or "boring," to show them that STEM is everywhere, it's relevant, and it's loads of fun. For proven lesson plans with just a dash of weird, STEM to Story is a dynamic resource, adaptable and applicable in school, after school, and at home.

This book is an autobiographical narration of the research activities, with penchant and passion, by two leading clinicians who turned towards stem cell research in later years of their life. The book is about facts as they happened, it also includes fiction as it should be a part of any novel and there is fantasizing as well as what one would like to be in the future. Facts, fiction and fantasy are frequently flavoured with philosophy as well. The authors axiomatically classify themselves as philosophers. Advocating that philosophy is the mother of all disciplines, they narrate how they jumped into deep waters of expensive stem cell research. The book describes how did they blunder at times and also cites the appearance of guardian angels to salvage them. Floundering from cell biology to different kinds of stem cell applications, the book describes where they have now parked at a far horizon, on the edge of new discovery of a wonderful drug. They ignite a spark of caution with restrictive regulations. The book ends with reframing the poem by Rabindranath Tagore, ‘Into that heaven of regenerative medicine, my Father, let my country awake.’

Unsigned binding design likely by Edwin Austin Abbey in brown over gold on olive green diagonally ribbed cloth. Includes frontispiece and over 130 illustrations from wood engravings by William Hamilton Gibson and Frederic Dielman. An idyllic tale of human love set among the changing seasons on a farm in the Hudson Highlands. Originally published as an 1884 story series in Harper's Magazine. A stunning binding design that contains similar design elements as Fly-Rods and Fly-Tackle. Nature's Serial Story and Fly-Rods and Fly-Tackle have similar Arts and Crafts inspired waving lines that provide the illusion of moving water, and were released together with Edwin Austin Abbey's memorable Arts and Crafts inspired binding design for Sketching Rambles in Holland by Harper as holiday books in 1885. All three books were bound in what Harper's called "illuminated cloth". As the Arts and Crafts font for Nature's Serial Song and and Sketching Rambles in Holland are very similar and the books have the same general feel, and as Abbey was actively designing covers for Harper at the time, Austin Abbey Rare Books is provisionally attributing the binding design of Nature's Serial Story to Edwin Austin Abbey pending additional research. -- Austin Abbey Rare Books.

Women and STEM need each other. Women can benefit from stable, well-paying STEM careers. STEM industries can benefit from increased numbers of STEM graduates and more diverse teams. Near-future, STEM-related, ethical challenges will need diverse teams to solve them. But girls in K–12 show less interest and identity with STEM than boys, they take fewer STEM courses, and they pursue STEM careers in lower numbers. This paper explores the use of narrative as pedagogy to increase STEM interest and identity for all students, especially for girls. A prototype STEM Story + Lesson was developed and tested in high school classrooms. The teachers’ experiences were analyzed to improve future story curation and lesson development. The STEM Story Framework was created to guide development of STEM Story + Lessons in the future, for classroom use and more detailed research.
