Play and learn online with the Strange Matter of Materials Science.

KB…Konnected’s insight:

“What’s materials science? You could call it the study of stuff! Just about everything you use every day – the shoes you wear, the dishes you eat from, the CDs you listen to, the bike or skateboard you ride – it’s all made of different kinds of stuff.”

This is a really interesting site geared for kids gr. 5-8. “Strange Matter” features online interactives as well as fun things to do in the classroom.

Downloads and guides included for teachers.

@AstronautAbbyA teen bringing STEM inspiration to young people all over the world through her passion and first hand space experiences.

 #scichat #STEM #space

Hoping to be one of the first to go to Mars, Abby shares her incredible journey on her blog. She is a girl with a mission and a well thought out plan.

Classroom Chats with Abby! Interested? I thought so.

“One of the tenants in STEM education is to pass the torch to the next generation of kids and ignite excitement and love of learning. Astronaut Abby wants to share her adventures in STEM learning with as many kids as possible. 

For Abby’s upcoming Soyuz Space Adventure she has created a series of web chats to share with kids around the world. Teachers, parents, students and community members may sign their school for a chance at a chat.

***Classrooms will be selected through a random drawing which will occur on June 15, 2013. Chats will be scheduled between September 2013 – February 2014.”

Abby has also created a Rocket Hub project proposal to help fund her projects which you can view here.
