Quotes

...standards we will take a needless step backwards at a time when our children deserve better," Neal wrote in an email to one Roundtable member. "We cannot say we want to build student preparedness for college and careers — especially in the increasingly valuable STEM fields — and then enact standards with mathematical errors and other glaring deficiencies."
"It was amazing. STEM experts from all over were there at the STEM Festival doing short educational activities with children," Chizek said. "The children were having a great time and learning all kinds of things related to STEM. I knew then that we needed to make something similar happen for Tama County children."
...students who continue to push the boundaries of science with their truly astounding creations," said Brad McCabe from Youth Science Canada. "The introduction of the BlackBerry Smartphone App Development Award will continue the CWSF tradition of instilling the spirit of innovation in participants and prepare them for the bright opportunities of a future career in science - especially in the rapidly growing field of mobile computing."
"There's a certain amount of nostalgia that's holding back manufacturing" Patrick said
