STEM Blogs We Love - mediablog.prnewswire.com

In recent years, there’s been a large push for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education.

The Department of Education explains the need for STEM education on its site: “In an ever-changing, increasingly complex world, it’s more important than ever that our nation’s youth are prepared to bring knowledge and skills to solve problems, make sense of information, and know how to gather and evaluate evidence to make decisions.”

With this topic in mind, I decided to look at some of the top STEM-related blogs.

There are plenty of great blogs out there for anyone interested in STEM. Whether you’re a teacher, parent, or just passionate about science and technology, check out these STEM blogs.

1. Edutopia

Edutopia is an educational foundation founded by award-winning filmmaker George Lucas (yes, that George Lucas) in 1991.

“We show people how they can adopt or adapt best practices, and we tell stories of innovation and continuous learning in the real world,” the site explains.

There are great STEM articles on the site that cover topics like education equity and different learning styles.

I enjoyed these posts: Using Problem-Solving to Build Community From Day 1; Using Blended Learning to Explore Multifaceted Topics; and Physics Design Challenges Based on Big Ideas.

2. HowStuffWorks | Science

This blog is perfect for anyone interested in all things science.

HowStuffWorks provides unbiased, easy-to-understand answers to questions you never thought you had.

Physical science, innovation and engineering are just a few of the article topics you can dive into on the site. There also are several fun podcast options to choose from.

Check out these posts: Here’s the Buzz on Alcohol in SpaceTungsten’s Boiling Point Is 10,030 F and Other Crazy Facts; and Going Nowhere Fast? Smart Traffic Lights Can Help Ease Gridlock.

3. ThinkFun

ThinkFun creates STEM-related apps, games, and educational programs to make learning fun. The company was founded by husband and wife team Bill Ritchie and Andrea Barthello in 1985.

The blog has great posts, including regular brainteasers for puzzle lovers, project ideas, tips for how to make learning enjoyable, and more.

Here are a few fun reads: Why Gamified Learning is Becoming Popular; Building STEAM Skills Through Pet Ownership; and Lemon Life: 4 Summer Fun Ideas for Kids Using Lemons.

4. IFLScience

With its take on “the lighter side of science,” IFLScience is a blog that will keep you clicking to the next post again and again.

Co-founded by Elise Andrew, IFLScience is perfect for adults who feel like geeking out on STEM-related news.

Posts have widespread appeal and cover topics like the environment, physics, and technology. A weekly newsletter also is available to help readers stay up on the latest science news.

I recommend reading Fish Can “Count”, And This Discovery Could Help Humans Too; Jupiter And Even A Moving Asteroid Snapped by JWST; and Scientists Grow Human Heart Ventricle In Lab, And It Beats Just Like The Organic Kind.

    Sorry to be Debbie Downer here, but it’s way past time for science to
    solve the pressing issues of our time–in fact, there is only one issue–
    climate change–which determines all the rest. Science and technology
    can’t solve this one without change on the part of cultures, industries,
    and every day people.

    Your feel-good post is operating on a plane of denial that has become the norm among
    many good people worldwide. I understand. The degree of sorrow and grief involved
    in facing up to the coming disaster is a place most people never want to go.
