Spotlight on: The New Cool

Don’t miss out on Neal Bascomb’s upcoming title, The New Cool, that’s coming out in March and is already being considered by a few science and technology colleges for common reads. The book tells the story of one high school physics teacher who, along with a band of high-I.Q. students, had a vision to make science, technology, engineering, and math cool again – and along the process, inspire a different and fresh view for education and leadership all together.

The New Cool would make a great faculty read and can help teachers learn to get their students excited about technology and science – a seemingly daunting task that Bascomb brings much-needed aid to.

And who says technology can’t be cool? Earlier this month inventor Dean Kamen and will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas launched the FIRST Robotics Competition 20th anniversary season with the Kickoff of a new robotics team called “LOGO MOTION.”
