Inside the depth-stop of the heat-set press. See previous post... Modeling in cylindrical space is tricky. Originally, I used #cinema4D to build the design, but have reconstructed it in #fusion360. #3Dprinted. #madeinvancouver
The #STEMinterns are excited to share their research with you! Catch the undergraduate symposium at the HSS building from 1 - 3pm then head over to the English and Comms building for the High School Science Fair from 3 - 5pm. #STEM#NSFINCLUDESGuam#BibaCIS
An early #wcw goes out to Ms. Katherine Johnson, best known as one of NASA's human computers and more recently as the inspiration behind the movie Hidden Figures. .
From the NASA website, "In 1953, after years as a teacher and later as a stay-at-home mom, she began working for NASA's predecessor, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, or NACA. The NACA had taken the unusual step of hiring women for the tedious and precise work of measuring and calculating the results of wind tunnel tests in 1935. In a time before the electronic computers we know today, these women had the job title of “computer.” During World War II, the NACA expanded this effort to include African-American women. The NACA was so pleased with the results that, unlike many organizations, they kept the women computers at work after the war. By 1953 the growing demands of early space research meant there were openings for African-American computers at Langley Research Center’s Guidance and Navigation Department – and Katherine Johnson found the perfect place to put her extraordinary mathematical skills to work."
Somedays I find myself drowning in comparison, overthinking my actions and criticizing myself. I’m sure you do too! It’s human nature to compare and try to fit in. What’s difficult is, is to be aware of such emotions that disturb your peace. Comparison when left uncheck leads to jealousy and jealousy has the power to destroy our productivity, relations and focus. .
So next time you find yourself feeling the pressure to be like someone else or to do what others are doing remember this quote and check your emotions before they steal you of your joy. .
The release of new STEM badges for Girl Scouts to explore topics such as cyber security, space exploration, environmental stewardship, robotics and mechanical engineering happens to fall on my one year anniversary of helping to build the pipeline of female STEM Leaders. It has been a pleasure to expose young girls to the possibilities of tomorrow through my passion for STEM. I will surely be busy as I begin year two within the world of Girl Scouts and STEM. 👩🏾🎓👩🏾🔬👩🏾💻👩🏾🚀💚 #STEM#girlscouts#goldaward#lifetimemember#ilooklikeanengineer#stemleaders#GIRL#gogetter#innovator#risktaker#leader

Problem solving and collaboration are very important skills that our students must develop and improve. Why not use Team Building STEM Challenges to teach these skills early in the year? See the resource here >>> bit.ly/TBSTEMBundle 🍎 (Link in profile @jewelpastor) #StartFreshBTS
RECRUITING NOW: Over 70 Early Career Researcher Opportunities now available - join Australia’s brightest and most innovative scientists, engineers and cyber specialists at the forefront of international defence research. As one of the world’s leading defence science and technology organisations, DST supports every aspect of Australia’s national defence capability. If a soldier eats it, wears it, thinks it, uses it or has to fight against it, there’s every chance that DST has done the research behind it.

It's sad that so many people, specifically women, were feeling this comment about the distinguished herpetology professor who used racy field photos of female students during his presentation at a conference and had a history of harassing women. Harassment of any kind, whether it's emotional, sexual, or physical, needs to stop, especially in the STEM field. Happens entirely too often, and just gets swept under the rug.
Calling all middle school girls in the Seattle area! Check out the picture for information on EduSTEM’s CxE Camp sponsored by AI4ALL this August in Kirkland, WA! We hope to see you or your daughter there.
You might have seen the picture I posted last week of me embedding some eyeballs in wax for sectioning! I finally finished sectioning them, and this is what I end up with! HEAPS of slides with tiny sections through my eyeballs 👀🔬
Today I’m going to be picking and processing slides for Periodic Acid-Schiff staining!
💡Periodic Acid-Schiff (PAS) staining is one of the most commonly performed special staining technique in histology (the study of tissues) which is used to highlight molecules with high percentage of carbohydrate content such as mucin, glycogen, fungi and basement membranes. It’s also a BEAUTIFUL stain! 😍
Stay tuned for more about PAS staining, how I do it and how my slides turn out! 😁👌
