Clickers in the science classroom (and you don’t even need the clickers)

In 2011 Nobel-prize winning physicist Carl Wieman published this article (1) in the prestigious journal Science. There is nothing remarkable that is what scientists do, the interesting part is that the article was not about the Bose-Einstein condensate, but about education. According to the study students learned much more from graduate...

How rural areas are guiding the way in Icelandic STEM education

Living in rural Iceland has never been easy. This is best demonstrated by Iceland’s population density of 3.1 /km2 compared to 73.4 /km2 in Ireland (which is rather smaller than Iceland) and 102 /km2 in Cuba (approx. the same size as Iceland). Living in Iceland has always revolved around the ever looming presence of death.  This has also been...
