After years of working exclusively in New Orleans, KIPP, the prominent charter school network, was approved Monday to expand upriver to start three schools in Baton Rouge. Look through a newspaper or magazine—or one of the education-focused news websites that have sprung up in recent years—and you’ll see plenty of stories about schools: teacher strikes, racial and socioeconomic disparities and segregation, charter schools, the role of technology, and (alas) school shootings.

The Senate budget bill, as filed, adds $2.4 billion to cover projected enrollment growth over the next two years, but also $6 billion above that to pay for increased teacher compensation and to offset whatever revenue is lost by any property tax reform measures that become law.

The Del Valle Education Association and its #FightFor15 campaign were rewarded – and so were all other Del Valle employees – when the school board on Tuesday night approved a new, minimum salary of $16 an hour for bus drivers and $15 an hour for all other support staff.

Inside Higher Ed reports that bills targeting for-profit institutions in California would prohibit tuition-sharing deals, which it says is a sign of growing political scrutiny of the role of online program management companies Officials at the University of Massachusetts warn that the state Senate’s proposed state budget would be devastating” to the university and could result in layoffs, cuts to student services and cuts to financial aid The latest NCAA Academic Progress Rate scores show college athletes are continuing to excel​ in the classroom, though they may be hitting a peak.

The School of Science & Technology (SST) is a dynamic community committed to educational excellence across disciplines in the life and physical sciences, technology, engineering, math and health-related sciences including kinesiology and nursing. Biographical Sketches are required for the Center Director and all faculty and staff members whose research, education, knowledge transfer, or broadening participation activities will be supported by the Center. Environmental technology is the application of environmental science and sustainable development, for the purpose of environmental conservation, by curbing negative impacts of human-environment interaction, and protecting the natural environment.

The Science and Technology Initiatives Fund (S&T) is a tool to catalyze research collaborations that strengthens the research enterprise of the University and brings economic benefit to the Commonwealth. Cold Regions Science and Technology is an international journal dealing with the science and technical problems of cold environments in both the polar regions and more temperate locations.

Our coverage comprises authoritative, highly accessible information on the very latest terminology, concepts, theories, techniques, people, and organizations relating to all areas of science and technology—from astronomy, engineering, physics, computer science, and mathematics, to life and earth sciences, chemistry, environmental science, biology, and psychology.

To identify which projects to support, NSF relies on a merit review process that incorporates consideration of both the technical aspects of a proposed project and its potential to contribute more broadly to advancing NSF’s mission “to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense; and for other purposes.” NSF makes every effort to conduct a fair, competitive, transparent merit review process for the selection of projects.

To one who has seen the adverse effects of some technologies on the environment the question how does technology protect the environment? The National Science Foundation has Telephonic Device for the Deaf (TDD) and Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) capabilities that enable individuals with hearing impairments to communicate with the Foundation about NSF programs, employment or general information.

Provide a clear and concise description of the Center including rationale, mission, and vision. 26: Science has also brought medical equipments that help to save human life. Science has brought sophistication to human life. 24: Science has changed the longstanding false notions of the people, which are not supported by Scientific Facts.

Since he joined NOAA in 1992, he has also served as an international affairs specialist with NOAA’s Office of International Affairs, a fisheries biologist with the NOAA Fisheries Office of Protected Resources, and chief of the Marine Ecosystems Division in the Office of Science and Technology.

Oceanography, one of the important four branches of Earth Science , is the study of the oceans. Scientists used their knowledge to develop technology and then used technology to develop Science; so, because of this reason science and technology are an integrated term in today’s world. With the introduction of robotic police and increasingly intensified surveillance procedures, some people question the direction of science … Read More..

The content standards presented in this chapter outline what students should know, understand, and be able to do in natural science. The Christine Mirzayan Science & Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program, now in its 20th year, provides early career individuals with the opportunity to spend 12 weeks at the Academies in Washington, DC learning about science and technology policy and the role that scientists and engineers play in advising the nation.

Advances in medical technology have contributed immensely in extending the life span of people. As disruptive technologies emerge, scientists need to re-engage the general public to understand changing expectations and views about science. The National Science Foundation promotes and advances scientific progress in the United States by competitively awarding grants and cooperative agreements for research and education in the sciences, mathematics, and engineering.

Support for each year of the cooperative agreement of a funded STC will be contingent upon a satisfactory annual review and site visit by NSF of the Center’s progress and future plans, with an emphasis on the quality of the research, education, broadening participation and knowledge transfer activities.

EAC membership is subject to NSF approval and must include representatives from those sectors served by the Center (e.g., institutions of higher education, industry, state and local agencies, national laboratories). A Dixie State University education provides real life experience through undergraduate research while preparing you for your career.

The evolution of science is like a boon to the world, as human beings come to know a lot about the world they are living in including the activities they indulge into. Science has also helped in the development of human skills. Describe the process by which the education and human resource development goals will be established, used to guide the formal evaluation approaches, and modified during the award period, if needed. STCs may involve any area of science and engineering that NSF supports.

NSF expects STCs to demonstrate leadership in the involvement of groups traditionally underrepresented in science and engineering at all levels (faculty, students, and postdoctoral researchers) within the Center. Science as defined here is sometimes termed pure science to differentiate it from applied science, which is the application of scientific research to specific human needs.
