As 2017 draws to a close, we at SB&F thought we’d take some time to compile a list of STEM toys that would make good gifts for the learners in your life.
Five female scientists will receive grants of $60,000 each to further their postdoctoral research through L’Oréal USA’s For Women in Science fellowship program.
Like birds and other flying animals, the robot uses perching as a way to conserve energy.
The device also improves on previous "wearable" monitors with higher memory performance, courtesy of gold nanoparticles.
The future of electronics is not just “smaller, faster and cheaper” but also bent, stretched and meltaway, Rogers said in his plenary lecture at the AAAS Annual Meeting.

Middle-school teachers Carol Rentas, Mary Joyner, and Michael Kelley folded cardboard strips into rectangles to build a miniature bridge during a recent AAAS workshop. Two other teachers, Shavonne Brown and Desirée Heyliger, stabilized their X-shaped bridge with straws. A third team, John Anthony and Ericka Jeter, built a six-legged frame for their model bridge.
