To encourage that marvelous giving nature in our readers, we at EE Times have come up with a way for you to mentor kids in just a few minutes, right from your own computer, or iPad, or smartphone, or whatever clever device you happen to carry.
We’ve gathered a bunch of eager kids and had them post science blogs on our very own EE Times STEM education site. (STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) All you need to do is read a few of their posts and comment away. Then sit back and enjoy the warm fuzzies you get from encouraging the next generation of engineers and scientists.
You don't need to thank us, it’s our pleasure to give your best side a chance to shine!
I can highly recommend to all engineers to get involved with a FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) team. The high school level of competition is going to be starting soon with the kickoff January 7th. Look for a local high school team and come see what the next generation of engineers are doing right now in high school. You will be amazed, and if you get involved will have a blast!
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
