This presentation lists all the recent press coverage received by for Curiosity School - STEM series app developed by MicroEmpowering.

The app is a greener alternative for teaching Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) to curious middle school students.

This iPad app was designed to promote a "learn by doing" approach to education by providing each user with a series of experiments, which are easily reproduced at home.

For enhanced learning, each experiment focuses on explaining how a certain STEM education concept works in practice.

This hands-on app allows students to take scientific theory to the next level by building and testing concepts in the real world, while fostering an interactive on-line learning experience.

  1. 1. Americans made 80 percent of all scientificdiscoveries from the 1930s to the 1960s. The UnitedStates owes its status to its investment inscience, technology, engineering, and mathematics(STEM) education. Today, many countries arefollowing suit by offering STEM educationprograms, improved infrastructure, numerousresearch opportunities, STEM scholarships, and activegovernment support.
  2. 2. "The United States has been the dominantscience superpower since the 1950s. As aresult, in the early 1960s, the United States wasspending seven times more money on scientificresearch than Europe," said Carolina CabralMurphy, Co-Founder of MicroEmpowering.
  3. 3. Focusing on college education and offering STEMscholarships to college students will not suffice.Those who obtain STEM degrees typically start toshow interest in science by age 11. This meansthat interest in science and mathematics must benurtured and encouraged during childhood.With this challenge in mindMicroEmpowering.org launched an App calledCuriosity School - STEM education series.
