Top college degrees in science today
Top college degrees in science today   Science degrees are always a popular choice for students in college. Having said this, I think that now is a better time than ever, to pursue an academic degree in one of many different fields offered online and on campus. New developments in the environment and in the world of business, have opened the doors to rewarding and lucrative new careers. One of the concerns of future college students (and their parents) is finding a discipline that they not only enjoy, but that will create long term employment prospects. Not only do some of the hottest jobs on the market require science-related skills, but these are the jobs that will be necessary and relevant for years to come. Because “science” covers such a broad area, and because some institutions of learning are more noted for particular offerings than others, what are the best science programs out there for your time and money?

Environmental science

As a fairly new discipline, the environmental science combines elements of physical and biological sciences, in order to study various environments helping making corrections within environments and public policy. Graduates in this field may do anything from practicing law, to acting as a consultant for a major corporation, working for a government to combat environmental woes, or teaching. Environmental scientists can expect salaries ranging from $61,000-$90,000 per year. However, before earning all that money, you’ll need to earn that degree. Community colleges offer environmental programs, four year studies and graduate program. Some of the United States’ best environmental science programs can be found at small liberal arts colleges. Pomona College in Claremont, California near Los Angles has what is considered to be the nation’s best environmental science program. Known as “Environmental Analysis”, this program offers students classes in community activism, environmental education, and urban agriculture. Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania, offers two tracks within its programs. Its Environmental Science track, focuses on the physiology and chemistry of living things, while those majoring in Environmental Studies focus on a broader spectrum, including law and philosophy. The SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) located in Syracuse, New York, offers classes with topics dealing with environmental challenges, and global needs for sustainable living.

Computer Science

Computer science has been around a lot longer than you might think, but like environmental science, it really hasn’t come into its own until the last few decades. Computer scientists deal with the development and practical applications of everything related to computers. Degree holders from this studies, have a wide range of career possibilities. NASA, the military, game designers, and the auto industry are among the few, where the employers are looking for computer scientists. Computer scientists can expect to earn between $57,000-$152,000 annually. Almost all institutions of higher learning, offer a computer science program, and the best in the United States are internationally ranked, as well. Leading on the America’s list are Carnegie-Mellon in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Stanford University in Stanford, California. Programs offered by these schools include programming, languages, artificial intelligence and physics and mathematics. I have mentioned just a couple of the possibilities offered when pursuing a degree and career in science. Students shouldn’t forget that many classes available online and through other methods of distance learning are great way of getting ahead. Many science degree holders of various types are applying their knowledge to business, as the makers of ASEA Science cellular regeneration products are doing. So, with so many options for pursuing a degree in science that will lead to an exciting career, potential students do not lack for possibilities in considering this field.   Author: Brooke Chaplan

Technology and children learning

Technology and children learning
  Just a few years back, schools or institutions of learning gave a completely different picture. There was a lot of manual work involved and teachers would lose their breathing by trying to give out lectures after lectures. Today, it is completely different as we see the growth in technological world, providing extremely convenient assistance to teachers and school going people. The kind of learning, interactivity and the science of teaching all have changed in the matter of a few years now. This means education has become more vibrant, fast paced and also fun. It is no longer just books and words to learn and give exams. We now live in a global-economy where knowledge and enhanced learning is absolutely important. The right method of teaching is to reinforce the message in such a way that it embeds itself into the minds of children. Unless children are taught in that way, education will have no prominence. To constantly manage enhanced learning and improve education standards, every day there are new forms of education methods integrated with technology platforms are introduced. Technology not only helps accelerate the learning process and make it more interesting for modern day children, but it also allows teachers to perform in a much better way. Today’s guest post blog will talk about four ways technology and devices can be used to enhance learning in children. Using actual physical objects through 3D printing technology In order to promote a better recall of products and items in children, the use of 3D device printers is something that has recently seen a sharp rise. Teachers are increasingly dependent on the use of such printers to help children learn better. Classes of the modern day world in top institutions have 3D printers for this sole reason. Other innovative products like projections and screens in class to show interactive fun lectures are also newly introduced concepts. Through all this, children can have a better recall and also motivated learning. When they enjoy the lessons and learning, then students also have a better educational development. Getting them acquainted with the internet Through the use of the internet, students who have grown slightly mature in their academic age can be very interestingly taught. The online world is completely full of interaction which can help students learn better. The use of the internet not only allows for a credible update information for teaching, but students can also find various avenues to explore which can further enlighten their interest in courses through different perspectives. Smart devices The use of handheld devices like tablets and screens are another important addition in the education world. Students as they grow prefer to deal with their academic commitments and classes all along the electronic devices and tablets play an important role in that. Using 4G phones Not only in the US, but also as far as the third world countries, smart phones are gaining increased popularity and the internet on smart phones is becoming cheaper. This means smart phones alone can provide access to education in children through their use. As the time progresses, we will see further expansion of the roles smart phones currently play in education and enhance the learning for children.

Women in computer science

If you think of computer science jobs, then you often think of men sitting behind computers typing all day and working on servers. The unfortunate truth is that there are woefully few women seeking computer science degrees. Many experts believe that this is due to how society views IT workers, but others believe it’s because women aren’t exposed to the possibility of a tech job early in life.

Make your family take your studies seriously

Make your family take your studies seriously One of the most attractive features of online learning for many people is that it is done in the comfort of their home, in their pajama, any time of day or night. But, this great advantage is at the same time one the biggest challenge online learners’ experience. How can you convince your family that, just because you are at home, it does not mean that you can do the laundry, take dog for a walk, fix the leaking faucet and thousands of other chores that have to be done daily. One of the first tasks in your online learning life is to create your own school environment, which will convince both yourself and your family or roommates that when you study, you are not available for anything else. They should just pretend that you are not there. Continue reading “Make your family take your studies seriously”
