Here is a STEM Worker on the Job

Posted: 2013-12-04

Here is the proof that STEM careers are indeed vital to our nation's survival.


  • "Everyone has a stake in improving STEM education."--Arne Duncan




  • The Obama Administration announced the President's plan to create a national Science, Math, Technology, and Engineering (STEM) Master Teacher Corps.--Office of Science and Technology Pollicy






  • In a bravura performance of ingenuity and craftsmanship, physicist David Neevel has invented Oreo Separator Machine #1. You can see how this works --in excruciating detail-- Here.



    The Oreo Separator Machine #1--or OSM as Neevel calls it-- is built of scrap aluminum, wood, a hatchet and floss. It includes a hatchet blade, mechanical arms, and a router table.



    Surely the millions of people who don't like the creme in the Oreos will be grateful.
