Imagine a solar cell to be so thin, that they can be placed on any material or surface, even our cap, paper, shirt or smartphone. MIT researchers have created solar cells which are thinnest , lightest ever – yet they can produce about 400 times more power than the standard photovoltaic cells. These Solar cells, technically […]
The idea of using game based ideas in the learning environment or gamification continues to gain momentum with teachers…but more importantly with students. Let’s not mistake “using games in the learning environment” with “gamifying the learning”. They are two different approaches to using technology within the classroom. Gamification is using the ideas that are found […]
Students use Chrome as the default browser, but understanding that Chrome is an operating system as much as it is a web browser is important. Because Chrome is based on the open-source Chromium project, it allows developers to create extensions that “extend” what the browser can do. Here are my 5 must have Chrome extensions: […]
India is the land of glorious history in the field of science and technology. It is the birth place of the great scientist Aryabhatta, who was the first to introduce the concept of numbers in the ancient times and this legacy has been carried forward by the modern scientists of the country, who have greatly […]
Scientists are using nanotechnology to make rare earth #magnets stronger but smaller in size. so that making the magnets requires fewer materials. These smaller magnets could help to create some of the tiniest and most fascinating robotic technologies. Here are some ground-breaking robots that magnets have helped to create. Shape Shifting Robots Last year, MIT’s Tangible Media Group […]
All of these tech toys are meant to promote learning and, more specifically, an interest in the STEM subjects — science, technology, engineering and math — according to the companies that manufacture them. Even well-known brands like Lego and Fisher-Price have come up with STEM-inspired electronics for grade-school students. Many of the technology aren’t for […]
