Science News for KidsScience News for Kids
Science for All (pdf) Quick, what does a real scientist, engineer or mathematician look like? If someone from the cast of televisionʼs The Big Bang Theory pops into your head, then keep reading. Here we go beyond the stereotypes to meet some real-life experts in science, technology, engineering and mathematics — the so-called STEM fields. Feature story in Science News for Kids (link opens in a new window) January 2013


 

AHPCRCArmy High Performance Computing Research Center
AHPCRC, a collaboration between the U.S. Army and a consortium of university and industry partners, develops high-performance computing methods, software, and systems to address the Army’s most difficult scientific and engineering challenges. From 2008 to 2011, I organized and managed the content for the AHPCRC website. I also wrote and produced the AHPCRC Bulletin (print and online newsletter).

Office of Naval Research: Navigator and The Originator

From 2003 through 2007, I wrote, edited, and produced content for The NRE Navigator and The Originator (external and internal newsletters, respectively, for the Office of Naval Research), andchemistry.org(website of the American Chemical Society)

These websites have been redesigned, and the articles are no longer available online. Here are some of the articles (PDF format).

 

 

Navigator articles
Atomic Clock Atomic Clocks: David J. Wineland was named one of the Scientific American 50 for 2006 for providing some of the most advanced experimental demonstrations to date of quantum logic operations, the essential basic elements of the still-hypothetical quantum computer.
Cohen on DHS Cohen on DHS: "I have to deal with the Sheriff of Mayberry, the NYPD, [Native American] tribal first responders, and the Chicago Fire Department," said Jay Cohen, Department of Homeland Security Under Secretary for Science and Technology, explaining his efforts to catch “the bad guys who work at the seams” between government agencies.
Glycopeptide Drugs Glycopeptide Drugs: Pharmacology researchers at the University of Arizona are finding ways to make the body's own chemicals more effective at relieving severe pain. These researchers envision making morphine obsolete.
Hiding in Plain Sound Hiding in Plain Sound: What if you could "cloak" a submarine so that sonar signals from another submarine flowed around it and didn't bounce back? Could you really make a submarine invisible (or inaudible)?
Hurricane Highway Hurricane Highway: Just in time for this year's hurricane season, researchers have incorporated effects of the Loop Current into the hurricane prediction model used by the National Hurricane Center.
LED Lights LED Lights at the Jefferson Memorial: For almost 60 years after the Jefferson Memorial's 1943 dedication, Jefferson's words, inscribed around the inside of the dome, remained in the shadows. Now, however, you can read them quite clearly, thanks to a ring of tiny gallium nitride light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that circle the dome, just out of sight.
Llama Sensors Llama Sensors: In the ongoing effort to improve biohazard detection, the newest recruits are big and wooly, and they have been known to spit. Luckily (for them and us), only their antibodies need to report to the suspected biohazard area.
Spiderman Suit Spiderman Suit: The tingly spider sense and radioactive blood will have to wait, but Nicola Pugno shows how existing materials could be used to make a very serviceable Spiderman suit.

 

Originator articles
EUWP EUWP to the Rescue: A high-volume water purification system developed by the Office of Naval Research has proved itself in a real-world emergency situation, providing a remote U.S. Coast Guard station with enough potable water to last through an Alaska winter.
Space Tunnel Space Tunnel: More than a billion years ago, in the center of the galaxy cluster Abell 2597, a tunnel formed that was large enough to house the entire Milky Way galaxy. The discovery of this tunnel was announced yesterday at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society.
Whitesides Nuts and Bolts of Scholarly Publishing: Noted chemistry professor Dr. George Whitesides insists that the students and postdocs under his supervision integrate writing into every aspect of their research rather than putting together a manuscript after a project is finished. "We use the writing to manage the research," he explained.
