Talent often goes undiscovered in impoverished and unrepresented communities. This is proving the case when it comes to gifted education. There is a large amount of African-American and Hispanic students in public schools, but few are considered gifted when compared to the White and Asian peers.
I hope everyone is doing fine. Since I have a combined interested in software and robotics, I decided to create 6 axis of Rotation robot arm (6 DOF Robot Arm) that will detect an object, pick, place and push. This robot can be controlled autonomously or using a PlayStation 3 controller with a Bluetooth connection.
The robot consists of:
- 6 DOF Robot Arm
- Six servos (MG 966R)
- Jumper Wires
- Bluetooth Module
- PS3 Controller
- Arduino Uno R3
- Ssc-32 servo controller lynxmotion
- Batteries (6v for the servo)
Liberia is one of the poorest countries in the world. A recent survey that measured countries by wealth ranked Liberia 164th out of 169. The country, founded by African American slaves who returned to Africa, enjoyed a relatively peaceful and stable existence until a succession of military dictators during the mid 1900s saw a drastic decline in fortunes.
Greetings from DC!
Andrew, Lauren, and I are perched here on the 3rd floor of the impressive Walter E. Washington Convention Center where AERA, now in its 100th year, is in full swing!
New York City brings together people who share extremely diverse cultures and backgrounds. It is thus probably beneficial to set up all aspects of our environment to meet the needs of this cultural fusion. Language is a huge part of culture and it should not be a barrier for education in New York City. There is a new program that offers classes in foreign languages. The languages include but are not limited to French, Arabic and Creole.
There is a plethora of games in this world and all have ways of teaching scenarios and solutions. However, when it comes to games for social change, there tends to be a huge miscommunication.
Gaming Revolution for International Development (GRID), uses games to motivate behavior change, improve health and education, and fight social issues such as discrimination and oppression.
When was the last time you heard someone in the media or government say “We must support and help entrepreneurs because they support our economy"? Probably not. Entrepreneurs or business owners are often viewed as self-centered and money hungry.
A lot of Individuals look displeased when they see a math problem because they find it difficult. This was not the case of a young boy who is now an Oxford professor. Andrew Wiles shocked the world when he solved a 300 year old math problem that had perplexed mathematicians for centuries.
Americans strive to create better opportunities for themselves by attaining a high level of education. It is the ideal way of grasping opportunities in our modern day economy. The system in which we live in allows us to access substantial amount of information that can help us function from day to day. The issue of attaining knowledge is the will to actually commit to it. Unfortunately some Americans "remain conflicted as to whether to extend that commitment to dramatically widening the pathway to higher education".
Civics, with its importance to our cultural and political life, is fast becoming an afterthought in our nation's schools. For some young people, government and even the cycle of elections sound like noise to their ears. Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman appointed to the US Supreme Court, has made Civics education her primary cause since leaving the bench.
