The Trump Administration has released its five-year lesson plan for boosting STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education.
The report, from the National Science & Technology Council, bills the plan as an "urgent call to action for nationwide collaboration." Urgent because the STEM disciplines are key to a competitive economy and "peace through strength," says the Administration.
Until you’ve reached the mid-point of your career, or unless you’re in a unique industry like academia or medicine, your resume should always be one-page long, right?
Despite the long-held convention, a recent study has found that two-page resumes are actually preferred by recruiters, no matter the candidate’s experience level.
Angela Saini knows what it’s like to be the only woman in the room, especially when that room is a science lab. In college, she was the only female in her engineering class. Before that, she’d been the only girl in her math class and her chemistry class. She went on to get two masters degrees, one in engineering and the other in science and security. Now an award-winning journalist, Saini is shining a light on the history of science, a field which, for all its good, has done a disservice to women — and to research — by largely dismissing them.

When we have a great year, we can fail to take the time to think about all the work, luck and assistance that had to come together to make it possible. Conversely, when we have a bad year, we often have no problem compiling lists of reasons for why it happened. Regardless of which type of year this turns out to be, taking these three steps will help wrap up any kind of year on a good note. The first step is all about mindset. Even at the end of a terrible year, there was something or someone that shone like a light at the end of the long tunnel.

While many job applications have the word “optional” next to the field that asks for a cover letter, it shouldn’t be overlooked. After all, a cover letter is intended to show you off and captivate a hiring manager, kind of like a movie trailer. It’s meant to tease and entice the recruiter or hiring manager to keep reading and be so interested in you that they simply cannot put down your resume. Think: personable and professional.
It was her first day in the field, and it was no picnic. The sharp stones and spiky bushes that covered the dry ground of South Africa’s Goegap Nature Reserve made it feel “like a very hostile environment,” recalls French environmental physiologist Karine Salin. She had moved nearly halfway across the globe to do a postdoc studying how striped mice survive the region’s extremely dry summer season.
A group of Harvard scientists plans to tackle climate change through geoengineering by blocking out the sun. The concept of artificially reflecting sunlight has been around for decades, yet this will be the first real attempt at controlling Earth's temperature through solar engineering.
The project, called Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment, will spend $3 million to test their models by launching a steerable balloon in the southwest U.S. 20 kilometers into the stratosphere.
Can you name a female scientist from history? Chances are you are shouting out Marie Curie. The twice Nobel Prize-winning Curie and mathematician Ada Lovelace are two of the few women within Western science to receive lasting popular recognition.
One reason women tend to be absent from narratives of science is because it’s not as easy to find female scientists on the public record.
