Newswise: High school students’ data science contributions boost biomineralization research

High school students’ data science contributions boost biomineralization research

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Two high school students developed software to analyze images of diatoms—algae that produce silicon for constructing cell walls—to determine the differences between wild and genetically modified strains of these organisms. This work was instrumental to a research team interested in optimizing diatoms for biomineralization, the process of making materials from biological systems.

Newswise: This App Teaches Sketching Skills to Improve Graduation Rates in Science and Engineering

This App Teaches Sketching Skills to Improve Graduation Rates in Science and Engineering

University of California San Diego

Engineers have developed a touchscreen app to teach students how to sketch 2D projections and 3D views freehand. This teaches students spatial visualization--the ability to think in 3D. This skill is important in many STEM fields, from Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) in engineering to using ultrasound for medical procedures.
