Colorado STEM 'road map' aims to increase diversity
Colorado Public Radio
A new effort will start soon to get more Colorado kids trained in science, technology, engineering and math — the so-called STEM classes. The non-profit Colorado Education Initiative is launching what it calls a STEM roadmap. The Education Initiative’s Lesley Dahlkemper says one goal is to get more girls, Latinos and rural students in STEM classes, where they are under-represented now.

The 7 common (and totally avoidable) mistakes new managers make
Fast Company

But while “Everyone certainly has the right to screw up in her own individual way,” says Lindsey Pollak, whose new management book Becoming the Boss is out this month, there are also “classic mistakes” made by “pretty much everyone I interviewed.” Here’s what they are, and how to avoid them.

Who defines diversity in the workplace?
MainStreet
Last month, Twitter shared a breakdown of its diversity data, admitting it had a lot of work to do. Like its technology peers, the Twitter workforce is mostly white and Asian male. In her post, Janet Van Huysse, vice president of diversity and inclusion, noted that it makes business sense that the faces of Twitter employees reflect "the vast and varied backgrounds of our users around the world." She also pointed out research that suggested that the more diverse a team, the better decisions it makes and that companies with women in leadership positions have better financial outcomes.

Sulfur fluoride exchange: A powerful new reaction for click chemistry
Phys.org
The coupling of molecular building blocks nearly as easy as "snapping" them together can be realized by means of the "click chemistry" tool kit. American scientists have now introduced another achievement for the click concept in the journal Angewandte Chemie: The sulfur fluoride exchange reaction (SuFEx) can be used to form robust inorganic bridges between carbon centers and opens up a fully unexplored area of chemistry with countless new molecules that could form the basis for new drugs, diagnostics, plastics, "intelligent" materials and many other products.

Get the stats on STEM versus STEAM
eSchool News
STEM education is, by now, familiar to educators and parents across the country. Without STEM knowledge, students won’t be well-prepared to enter college and the workforce. But some are hoping that STEAM education, which includes the arts, will receive more support in classrooms. According to research compiled by the University of Florida, students who engage in music education often perform better on math tasks.

Flexible solar cell woven into fabric
Chemistry World
Wearable electronics are quickly becoming the fashion. And there could soon be a way to power those electronics indefinitely, now that scientists in China have developed a solar cell "textile" that could be woven into clothes. The textile retains a power-generation efficiency close to 1 percent even after been bent more than 200 times, and can be illuminated from both sides.

Policymakers hail STEM education as a strong foundation, pushing innovation
The Washington Post
Although a recent study found that almost 75 percent of those who have science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) bachelor’s degrees have jobs in other fields, policymakers, advocates and executives continue to push STEM education as a way to close achievement gaps and produce U.S. innovation. Senior officials with the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy say the focus on STEM education is a response to global achievement trends, with an effort to develop students’ skills rather than drive them to specific careers.
