Hands-On Technology Education is Hiring

Friends/Educators/STEM-enthusiasts,
My company (Hands-On Technology Education!) is looking to hire additional STEM instructors for our 2018 activities (after-school programs, workshops, summer camps).

Click the image to view their Flyer!

 

An enormous amount of planning has been done so that we can reach our goal of interacting with 400+ students in the 2018 calendar year, but the plan is contingent upon us finding more qualified teachers to help us facilitate our Mobile Technology programs!

 

If you know of anyone who would be interested in getting involved with cutting-edge, K-12 STEM education, please have them check the flyer attached to this e-mail as well as the job posting we placed on Indeed:

 

Also if you have any particularly strong references, please let them know they can e-mail me directly in addition to applying on Indeed 🙂
Thanks for your help!!!

Venue Space – La Jolla Library

We are so grateful for our network in San Diego and around the world.  Please read below if you are looking for a venue space for STEM/STEAM or something else!
I work with the La Jolla Library to organize a series of science workshops and lectures. We also have a biology lab to support workshops that gets little use during the week, but we have had students use the lab for science fair projects in the past. I would love to invite other groups that might need space to do lab experiments or classes to use this facility- doesn’t necessarily have to be biology, but that is mostly what we are set up for.
You can read more about it here:
Please feel free to share this information with any other science educators in San Diego who you think would be interested in this resource.
Best Regards,
Callen

One Year Adorning the World!

Sept. 12, 2014 - Sept. 12, 2015

Sept. 12, 2014 – Sept. 12, 2015

Sept. 12, 2015
This year has been the most fantastic journey of my life.  I now know that I was not made to do anything different than Adorn the already beautiful lives of people.  Adorn really comes from my initial vision for the business, Math Tutoring.  I never intended to be a teacher, but I wanted to add to the lessons already given.  During my initial evaluation as a tutor, I have students bring their books, notes, exams, and homework.  From these, I am able to get a better understanding of what their teacher has already taught them and how I can Adorn that instruction.  This way, the student understands their current material, and I teach them concepts that will allow them to excel in the classroom.

My favorite moment caught on camera. My Aerospace/Mechanical track students win the Hack.IT Bahamas Design Project Competition and are presented a check for $1,000 by STEMBoard Co-founder and CEO, Ms. Aisha Bowe! Please Check out their website at www.bahamabuoys.com

The biggest lesson:  Follow God
Usually, when I introduce my company as “Adorn The World”, I would get the yeah… okay… World? look.  Even before I knew how it would happen, I declared that I would impact the world.  Through following God’s instructions to tap into the miracles that he has already placed into my life, Adorn The World was sponsored to teach and mentor at an engineering summer camp in The Bahamas!  Some of the first year’s major accomplishments are:

Renewing the Company Paperwork and starting Psalm 150 Orchestra! So much growth and development.

One year Later — Renewing the Adorn the World Paperwork and starting Psalm 150 Orchestra! So much growth and development.

I am most excited to announce that days before renewing my first company, Adorn The World, I began my my second company!! Psalm 150 Orchestra was established September 9, 2015!  I am really excited about this vision that God has given me to take Adorn Artistry to another level.

Please leave your comments and current or future affiliation with Adorn The World below.  Thank you so much for your prayers and support!  It is invaluable, and I really appreciate it.

In Him We Move

Shout out to In Him We Move Liturgical Dance Conference for posting Ms. Jasmine Sadler, our founder on their homepage banner for “No Boundaries, No Excuses”!  The photo is from the 2014 conference themed Beyond the Veil.  Her first Conference with In Him We Move was in 2013 with the theme Another Dimension.  This year’s conference is currently going on through August 15 closing with a free Liturgical Dance Concert that includes Lyrical, Mime, Hiz-Hop.  Each year continues to expand, but the one thing that remains constant is the bible study session hosted by the instructors to remind us of the significance and opportunities of ministering through dance.  We highly recommend this life changing experience to anyone interested in Dancing for Jesus!

Does it Hertz?

I am in a training class this week for turbine operations and maintenance. My teacher introduced a question by saying we would use a certain gearbox, which makes the math easy.
The (mostly rhetorical) question was:

A gear is spinning at 250 Hertz and it has 12 gear teeth.  When multiplying those together, what is the speed of each gear tooth?

Within seconds, I said 3,000 Hertz and my other 5 classmates looked at me shocked (including the 2 engineers).  I’m not sure if it was the introduction that the math would be made “easy” by the numbers he chose, or if I was looking at the numbers differently since I helped my friend factor some polynomials over the weekend.  Regardless, let me tell you how I did it.

Now this is a Gearbox!

Unlike most, when I see the number 25 I get excited because it reminds me of quarters, which was the first numbers I learned – Money $$.  Just after learning your multiples of 0, 1, 2, 5, 10, 11, all Algebrains (I just made that up) should learn your multiples of 25.  With 25, the way I think about it is “It takes four of these to total 100.”  So when multiplying 25 times 12, we have three-100s.  But since we had 250 and not just 25, we now have thirty-100s also known as 30,00 or 3 thousand!

P.S. what we were really calculating in the class is known as the Gear Mesh Frequency, which I had to research the exact term for you all and myself 🙂
