    Joules Webb - STEM - Women are FIRST

    in Electronics

    One of the things we hear time and time again is the importance of Science, Technology Engineering and Math commonly referred to as STEM in the education. In order for students to be better prepared for the workforce of the future. Well, I am especially pleased to have Joules Webb on the show. Joules is the Associate Director, Pre-freshman Engineering Program (PREP), The University of Texas at San Antonio. She is also an advocate for STEM eduation and is known on Twitter as @STEMJoules.


    On today's show we learn more about what Joules is doing to promote STEM in our community. She also shares the inspiration and goals behind the Women in FIRST luncheon event.

    Stem Cells and Neurological Diseases: Facts and Fiction

    in Health

    Curing vision loss, growing  new skin for burn patients, growing blood vessels, and curing neurological diseases. These are a few of the proposed benefits from stem cell therapy. Embryonic stem cell research has been a source of political debate and controversy, but adult stem cells exist throughout our body after embryonic development and there is some evidence to suggest that they can differentiate to become other cell types. This potential capacity for adult stem cells to be instructed to specialize interests scientists and researchers who hope it will lead to a cure for Parkinson's and other neurological diseases.


    Separating stem cell fact from fiction will be the role of my guest, Dr. Juan R. Sanchez-Ramos,   Movement Disorders Professor and Researcher, Department of Neurology, USF Health, Tampa, Fl.  Dr. Ramos’ Clinical interests include: neurodegenerative diseases with focus on Huntington’s and Parkinson's disease. His research interests include: neurodegeneration, neurotoxicology and adult stem cell biology. Dr. Ramos is the Medical Director for the Parkinson Research Foundation, and provides monthly Ask the Doctor lectures at its community based program, Parkinson Place in Sarasota, Florida.

    Where Art Thou: Moving From STEM To STEAM

    in Education

    Where Art Thou?: Moving from STEM to STEAM


    STEM is all the rage and rightly so. The skills our children need to learn regardless of their profession incorporate the skills that are taught in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics classes. With the emphasis on these studies one has to wonder what has become of a well-rounded liberal arts education. Schools in many cases have squeezed out fine and performing arts in order to make time for all STEM requirements. In the last five years however, many have come to understand, that arts incorporate complimentary processes to those addressed in STEM curricula. Things have started to heat up in moving from STEM to add the arts and move to STEAM.


    In this show, we will explore how the arts are integrated into a STEM centered curriculum and provide a vision of how arts can be better integrated to provide learning opportunities for all students.


    Join Host Michael Jay and ETT Guests ponder the following:



    What are some examples of the process of moving from STEM to STEAM?
    What benefits and trade offs are made in the process of incorporating arts into a STEM curriculum?
    How prepared are educators to engage learners in learning activities that incorporate the arts?
    What can publishers and curriculum developers do to incorporate more STEM into their arts curricula and/or more arts into their STEM curricula?

    Autism and Stem Cells

    in Self Help

    Tune in LIVE this Sunday September 14th at 4pm PDT as I welcome Marty Kelly to the show Autism & Stem Cells.  You’re encouraged to call into the show with questions for Justine aka Miss ADD, or Marty at (917) 889-7025.


     


    Marty Kelly’s son, Kenneth, was diagnosed with Autism, and she had exhausted every possible medical treatment in the U.S.  She and her husband eventually traveled to Panama, for Kenneth to receive STEM CELL TREATMENTS and it has made a huge difference in his life.  At age 8 he had an IQ of 55, at 13 he now is in school and has an IQ of 98.  Listen LIVE on Sunday to find out why they attribute this incredible success to stem cell treatments.

    Mentoring Women and Minorities in STEM Careers

    in Women

    This week, my guest, Mary Fernandez, is joining me to talk about MentorNet, an organization dedicated to advancing women and underrepresented minorities in STEM fields. Mentoring helps women in remain in STEM careers and also be successful. Part of the challenge is gender, but another is race and culture and Mary will talk about her own story of how mentoring helped her overcome her challenges as a Latina woman in STEM and how MentorNet now is helping students of diverse backgrounds succeed.


    Mary Fernandez was named CEO of MentorNet in 2013 and since that time has renewed the organization’s commitment to its core values. Drawing upon the past decade’s revolutionary changes in social communication and significant advances in mentoring social science, Fernandez and her team have completely re-envisioned MentorNet’s program and platform and advocate for scaling their initiatives significantly, as they are convinced that their new methodology will help all STEM students.


    A leader and active volunteer, Fernandez earned a PhD in Computer Science from Princeton University and is the author of more than 50 scholarly publications. She holds five patents and has mentored more than 20 STEM protégés. In 2012 Fernandez was recognized by AT&T as a ‘Champion of Diversity,’ a distinction awarded annually to only five of AT&T’s more than 300,000 employees, and in 2011 she received HENAAC’s ‘Outstanding Technical Achievement-Industry’ award.
