If there is one equation known by the public, it is E=mc2. Created in 1905, the theory of Special Relativity has transformed our understanding of the Universe and the way it works. In that same year, 1905, Einstein explained the photoelectric effect by declaring that energy was quantized, for which he was awarded a Nobel Prize.Read more...

Science teacher Alexandre Gomes likes to think “out of the box,” and nothing pleases him more than to tinker with a device to make it do something more than what it was designed for. Why not turn the TI-Innovator™ Rover into a floating measuring station, for example? Gomes and five of his students at the Portuguese Oliveira Júnior school put their sailing caps on and adapted the device for movement on water.Read more...

The James Webb Space Telescope has reached Lagrange point 2, one and a half million kilometers away, and is getting ready to explore the cosmos in the infrared part of the spectrum. Expansion of the universe means that after 15 billion years the light emitted by the earliest galaxies has stretched so that it is now in the infrared part of the spectrum. In this blog we focus on the discovery and use of infrared radiation.Read more...

On January 23, 2022, the James Webb Space Telescope reached its destination. This highly complex instrument is taking advantage of a cosmic location discovered by Euler and Lagrange more than 200 years ago. Read on to see how you can incorporate this into a classroom activity to calculate the Lagrange points.Read more...

Programming and teaching students how to code are an important part of the transformation of education in France. Four years after the start of this process, and a global pandemic later, two observations can be made that are also valuable for other countries in Europe. Firstly, teachers are willing to take up the challenge, but they are still very much in need of support. Secondly, numerous projects have been launched with the help of new tools to support both teachers and students to understand these new concepts. Among these tools, BBC micro:bit is popular, as is the TI-Innovator™ Hub and the robotic vehicle TI-Innovator™ Rover.Read more...

The aim of the Computational Thinking strategy at the Leo Kanner secondary school in Leiden is to teach children to approach problems logically and to use digital tools to solve them. To this end, the school organised a pilot programme using TI-Nspire™ CX technology. “An important plus is that you learn the basics of computational thinking through this technology,” says teacher Zeno van der Zalm. “We started small, but we are now in the phase where we are involving more teachers and subjects in the trajectory.
