October 29, 2023 AT 2:00 pm Once upon a time, at the famously chill University of Santa Cruz, there was a famously chill intro to physics class.This class was taught by legendary professor Bruce Rosenblum, whose unofficial name for the class was “Physics for Poets.” In the class he’d pour liquid nitrogen on the floor, dress up like Galileo, and deliver lectures to plushie monkeys, all in an effort to make non-STEM students get into STEM.So how do you get STEM students into poetry?Or even literature?Here’s more from piquosity:Just as there are students that struggle with math but devour books, there are those that naturally grasp STEM skills more easily than reading and writing skills. Every student is allowed their own academic preferences, of course, but it’s vital for them to develop well-rounded academic capabilities.Proficiency in science or math is excellent, but a humanities education is just as important.That’s why we’ve developed this collection of the best books for STEM students that can motivate STEM-inclined students to develop a love of reading.From science fiction classics and modern tales to riveting nonfiction with a STEM focus, this list has inspiring reads for to-be scientists and engineers of any grade level.See more!Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world.Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to.While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandardsAdafruit is on Mastodon, join in! adafruit.com/mastodonStop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately!Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more.Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE.Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino.It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound.
