With Jurassic World premiering in just three weeks, talk of dinosaurs has been all of the Internet. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read speculation articles or watched new trailers moments after their release.

An added bonus is that it comes out on my birthday—a nice little present for me from the kind folks at Universal.

Raspberry Pi is a “system on a chip” model that integrates all components of a computer onto a single chip. It was invented in 2012 to help computer science classes be more empowered to reach kids and help them learn programming before they lose interest in STEM fields.

These little chips, which run between $25 and $35 dollars, have developed a huge community following—more than 4.5 million have been sold in the last three years.

3D Printing in the Classroom

Kids are amazing learners. They pick up on lessons with ease and carry them for the rest of their lives.

But because kids remember everything, it’s extremely important to introduce complex ideas to them in a fun and age-appropriate way.

One field that often loses kids’ interest after elementary school is STEM: science, technology, engineering, and math. Although kids tend to go into their school years with an enthusiasm for scientific discovery, only about 16% of students leave school with the same level of enthusiasm.

Kids in STEM

Kids in STEM Subjects

One of the ways that we at RevPart give back to our community is by donating time and money to get kids excited about science, technology, engineering, and math. This group of subjects, collectively known as STEM, is rapidly growing and expanding….But even as these job fields are growing and moving in new directions, some people are concerned that America is not ready to compete with the rest of the world.
