This month Science & U! enters the investing world; uses Hip Hop to teach science; discovers a city-wide initiative to teach computer science; studies mummies; and takes an in-depth look at Lewy Body Dementia.
For those who always wanted to get into investing but never thought they’d be able to compete with the big banks a new service is on its way. Polish company, Exeria, has taken robo-investing and put it in the hands of the everyday investor.
Science is fascinating, but some still find it a little boring; in steps Hip Hop. A group known as FMA Live! and a local science educator have separately found similar ways to get students engaged in science.
It is well known that learning another language is easier the younger you start; the same goes for coding languages. City Hall has taken on a program called “Computer Science For All” to get computer programming in the public school curriculum.
It seems like we can learn a lot from ancient Egypt and we’re about to learn a whole lot more. With new MRI and CAT Scan technology we are now able to learn more about mummies including cause of death.
Dementia has been a battle for most people in one way or another and Lewy Body Dementia is no exception. We take an in-depth look at what is considered the second most common neuro-degenerative disorder.
