Roundup – for Educators & Teaching! – of Short Films that Address STEM Topics | via @MovingImageNYC
This is rad. The Museum of the Moving Image have compiled a ‘Teacher’s Guide‘ (PDF) of 50 science- and STEM-topical films that address everything from genetics and physics to evolution and chemistry. These are all short films (so easily digested in the classroom) and as a bonus each entry includes off-site ‘resources’ linked from within the PDF. For instance the inclusion of Yellow Rain links to a National Institute of Health EMBO report and a Nonproliferation Review article from 2001.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
