    NOAA to Teachers: Bring NOAA back to School with You

    National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to Teachers: Bring NOAA back to School with You | site |




    NOAA says, "Summer has breezed by and it’s back-to-school time already! NOAA has got you covered with Earth science content for the new school year".


    (Information contained in National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration [NOAA] news article dated: August 16, 2021)


    Here are a few of our favorite education resources for teachers, and you can find even more in our resource collections.

    Teach about climate and climate change

    Climate and climate change are critical topics, and your students may have a lot of questions about what they hear in the news and on social media. But it ...

    A Message to 24th Century Engineers

    | site |


    THINKING THREE HUNDRED YEARS AHEAD




    A MESSAGE TO 24TH CENTURY ENGINEERS





    Greetings! This message is to people who are engineers in the year 2321 A.D. This is a message from the past (actually from 300 years in the past). In the past, the year is 2021. My name is Clarence William Page. I write in order to make a contribution to your age, your society, your world. To many of you, the past is a long time ago. I lived during that “long time ago”. We thought we were “modern”. We thought we were “advanced”. We invented much of what you consider rudimentary and mediocre (if not “ancient”). We took pride in something we called the “Internet”. (You have probably discarded it by now.) I have a few suggestions for you. Why for you and not for my generation? My generation would just reject them out of hand and call me a kook. (“Kook” was a word we used to ...

    NIH says historic findings could boost precision medicine, reduce health disparities


    (Information contained in National Institutes of Health [NIH] press release dated: February 10, 2021)

    Researchers supported by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of the National Institutes of Health, announced the publication of a groundbreaking study which analyzed more than 53,000 whole genomes, primarily from minority populations. The study, which appears in the Feb. 10 online issue of the journal Nature, examines one of the largest and most diverse data sets of high-quality whole genome sequencing—a person’s complete set of DNA. The genetic data could shed new light on how heart, lung, blood, and sleep disorders impact people with diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, who often are underrepresented in genetic

    Bringing Atoms to a Standstill: NIST Miniaturizes Laser Cooling | site |




    (Information contained in National Institute of Standards and Technology [NIST] press release dated: January 21, 2021)

    It’s cool to be small. Scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have miniaturized the optical components required to cool atoms down to a few thousandths of a degree Celsius above absolute zero, the first step in employing them on microchips to drive a new generation of super-accurate atomic clocks, enable navigation without GPS, and simulate quantum systems. Cooling atoms is equivalent to slowing them down, which makes them a lot easier to study. At room temperature, atoms whiz through the air at nearly the speed of sound, some 343 meters per second. The rapid, randomly moving atoms have only fleeting interactions with other particles, and their motion can make it difficult to measure transitions between ato...

    (Information contained in National Institute of Standards and Technology [NIST] press release dated: December 10, 2020)

    In a step toward making more accurate and uniform 3D-printed parts such as personalized prosthetics and dental materials, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated a method of measuring the rate at which microscopic regions of a liquid raw material harden into a solid plastic when exposed to light.

    NIST’s custom atomic force microscope (AFM) with a nanometer-scale, cylinder-shaped tip revealed that the complex process of curing resins, as they

    NIST says New JILA Tools ‘Turn On’ Quantum Gases of Ultracold Molecules

    National Institute of Standards and Technology says New JILA Tools ‘Turn On’ Quantum Gases of Ultracold Molecules | site |



    (Information contained in National Institute of Standards and Technology [NIST] press release: December 9, 2020)


    JILA researchers have developed tools to “turn on” quantum gases of ultracold molecules, gaining control of long-distance molecular interactions for potential applications such as encoding data for quantum computing and simulations.

    The new scheme for nudging a molecular gas down to its lowest energy state, called quantum degeneracy, while suppressing chemical reactions that break up molecules finally makes it possible to explore exotic quantum states in which all the molecules interact with one another.

    The research is described in a Nature paper published online Dec. 9. JILA is a joint institute of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University

    Novel error-correction approach could address a long-standing issue with quantum computers.


    (Information contained in National Institute of Standards and Technology [NIST] press release: December 8, 2020)

    One of the chief obstacles facing quantum computer designers — correcting the errors that creep into a processor’s calculations — could be overcome with a new approach by physicists from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the University of Maryland and the California Institute of Technology, who may have found a way to design quantum memory switches that would self-correct.

    (Information contained in U.S. Department of Energy [DOE] press release: December 4, 2020)

    Washington, D.C. - - Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the winners of the American-Made Solar Prize Round 3 and the 20 semifinalist teams selected to advance to the next phase of Round 4. Through the Solar Prize, DOE works to bring hardware technology innovations to market faster and to bolster American competitiveness in solar hardware manufacturing.

    “Since its launch in 2018, the Solar Prize has awarded $11 million to 80 teams to solve problems that transform the solar industry,” said Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Daniel Simmons. “We are excited to see what these winners will do.”

    The two Round 3 winning teams will each receive a grand prize of $500,000 in cash and $75,000 in vouchers.

    Envision color: Activity Patterns in the Brain are Specific to the Color You See | site |


    NIH research findings reveal new aspects of visual processing.


    (November 16, 2020) - - Today the National Institutes of Health (NIH) published the following information: Researchers at the National Eye Institute (NEI) have decoded brain maps of human color perception. The findings, published today in Current Biology, open a window into how color processing is organized in the brain, and how the brain recognizes and groups colors in the environment. The study may have implications for the development of machine-brain interfaces for visual prosthetics. NEI is part of the National Institutes of Health. “This is one of the first studies to determine what color a person is seeing based on direct measurements of brain activity,” said Bevil Conway, Ph.D., chief of NEI’s Unit on Sensation, Cognition and Action, who led the study. “The approach lets us get at...
