The topic du jour for education is STEM, the abbreviation for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The reason for the focus is illustrated simply by the future demand for jobs within the four topics; projections by the U.S. Department of Education anticipate careers in STEM will increase exponentially this decade. Biomedical engineering positions alone are expected to jump by 62 percent.

It's not unusual for your average 77-year-old man to lose some hearing in one ear.
The opening bell rang as the iconic “For the Love of Money” by The O’Jays played and 350 high school students all at once began yelling while gesturing and scrawling down notes from reports.
An anti-bullying allegory writ on the largest possible scale, "Ender's Game" frames an interstellar battle between mankind and pushy ant-like aliens, called Formics, in which Earth's fate hinges on a tiny group of military cadets, most of whom haven't even hit puberty yet. At face value, the film presents an electrifying star-wars scenario — that rare case where an epic space battle transpires entirely within the span of two hours — while at the same time managing to deliver a higher pedagogical message about tolerance, empathy and coping under pressure. Against considerable odds, this risky-sounding Orson Scott Card adaptation actually works, as director Gavin Hood pulls off the sort of teen-targeted franchise starter Summit was hoping for.
We all know that the Star Trek mission is “to explore strange new worlds” and “seek out new life and new civilizations,” so it’s only logical that the Starship Enterprise would eventually end up at the Arizona State Fair. Nestled amongst the “Bacon A-Fair” food stands and “Tilt-A-Whirl” thrill rides, “Star Trek: The Exhibition” has landed.
Here’s the other big Mesa schools’ matchup. Mountain View is reeling a bit after last week’s rough second half in a loss to Desert Mountain, but injuries have been the Toros’ bigger cause for concern. More kids were lost against Desert Mountain, and while a week of practice will help some kids who haven’t seen many (or any) reps heading into this game, Mesa’s defense is difficult to simulate. We know what the Jackrabbits are going to do: run the ball. This is a vastly different matchup than Desert Mountain presented for the Toros (especially defensively) which probably plays into Mountain View’s favor given its injuries. Mesa is going to come out firing as it tries to hang on for its playoff lives, but the Toros will do just enough to get by this week, which is big because Red Mountain and Desert Ridge are coming.
Prediction: Mountain View 20, Mesa 10
