KitHub Turns 2 Years Old!
KitHub Turns Two - A Year In Review
2016 has been a year for wild and outrageous headlines in sports and politics, but throughout the months, science news has continued to be in the headlines, for good or bad. For instance, new research studies are refuting the long-held theory of an ice bridge bringing humans to North America, and NASA and other space agencies explore farther and farther into the universe. But at the same time, many Americans still struggle with basic science. That is a problem when qualified candidates are increasingly needed for high-paying jobs in expanding science-based industries. The growth of independent production, the maker community, and tools such as 3D printers are useful, but before anyone can work in the sciences, there needs to be an understanding of the sciences. To succeed in the changing world, science literacy is more important than ever. So it is essential to provide students, parents and teachers with the resources needed to help children learn the STEM field.
