High School Summer Research Opportunities: Comprehensive Collection of Research Programs

by Abhilash Potluri

This book is a compilation of the summer research opportunities for high school students. This book is a result of our own research into available opportunities primarily in the STEM and humanities arena.We have over 175 premier programs nationally and covering about 33 states and Canada. Majority of the programs are either FREE or pay Stipend!. Apart from an excellent compilation of these programs we also offer our first-hand experience on how to successfully prepare and apply to these programs. In some instances we share our personal experience having participated in some of these programs. We took a lot of effort to list programs that are available in summer and year-round. We also included a lot of programs aimed specifically at underrepresented minorities with hope this would increase awareness and participation. The book is not limited to science and technology but also covers excellent programs in humanities as well.Each program listed has a wealth of information in an easy to read graphical format to include background, costs, stipend, housing, eligibility, and deadlines. Although we focused a lot on programs that either pay a stipend or is of no cost, we also included programs that have a fee to ensure we cater to all students. The book is organized by each state making it easy to find programs in a given location or nationally.This book is a perfect tool for high school students who want to conduct independent research at premier institutions. It is also aimed at high school guidance counselors who can quickly share the relevant programs to their students based on their criteria and interest. This book will aid you in your journey to find a perfect opportunity to research in your interested area.

Stephen Hawking: Extraordinary Life Lessons That Will Change Your Life Forever (Inspirational Books)

by Jamie Cooper

*** Limited time offer ***


You are about to discover some of the greatest life secrets known to man. Whatever your circumstances, you can create the life you desire by following simple, counterintuitive steps; not the steps society wants you to follow. Unfortunately, you cannot even trust yourself when it comes to creating the life that you desire, because you’re programmed by your past, an accumulation of hundreds of thousands of years, a mind still adapted for a hunter-gatherer time period. What does this mean? It means every day you’re battling your emotions, logic versus emotion. Logically, you want to do one thing, but emotionally, you are drawn to something else. First, if this sounds familiar, then great, because it means you are human. But, if you’re going to win the game of life, you cannot sit around and wait for things to happen, because you’ll be living a life of supreme comfort and sameness; ultimately, a great sin. You are destined for great things, capable of forging dreams and living your aspirations. Maybe you’ve forgotten about this truth: that you are capable, worthy, and ready. Maybe you’ve been beaten into the ground by life, a teacher who doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, weak or strong, ready or not, because life will continue forward regardless, waiting for no one.

Fortunately, there’re things you can do to set yourself apart from the millions that will ultimately suffer and fail. One such thing, perhaps the most powerful of all, is by studying the great, people who have succeeded and who have gone beyond what is humanly thought possible. When it comes to studying someone great, there’s one name that stands tall, Stephen Hawking, a person who has persevered and flourished. Not only has he conquered great adversity, but he has inspired millions around the world with his brilliant mind. There is a reason why people compare him with the once living Albert Einstein, the genius. What follows are Stephen Hawking’s greatest life lessons, gems of wisdom that you can easily apply to your own life, which will help you live a more abundant, stronger life. If you’re in need of inspiration, a boost of confidence, or just a friendly reminder of the wonders in life, you’ve come to the right place. See for yourself why millions study his work and regard him as a genius. Scroll up and grab your copy today.

Instructional Scaffolding in STEM Education: Strategies and Efficacy Evidence

by Brian R. Belland

This book uses meta-analysis to synthesize research on scaffolding and scaffolding-related interventions in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education. Specifically, the volume examines the extent to which study quality, assessment type, and scaffolding characteristics (strategy, intended outcome, fading schedule, scaffolding intervention, and paired intervention) influence cognitive student outcomes. It includes detailed descriptions of the theoretical foundations of scaffolding, scaffolding strategies that have been proposed to meet different intended learning outcomes in STEM, and associated efficacy information. Furthermore, the book describes assessment strategies and study designs which can be used to evaluate the influence of scaffolding, and suggests new fields in which scaffolding strategies that have proven efficacious may be used.

Science and Technology Governance and Ethics: A Global Perspective from Europe, India and China

by Miltos Ladikas

This book analyzes the possibilities for effective global governance of science in Europe, India and China. Authors from the three regions join forces to explore how ethical concerns over new technologies can be incorporated into global science and technology policies. The first chapter introduces the topic, offering a global perspective on embedding ethics in science and technology policy. Chapter Two compares the institutionalization of ethical debates in science, technology and innovation policy in three important regions: Europe, India and China. The third chapter explores public perceptions of science and technology in these same three regions. Chapter Four discusses public engagement in the governance of science and technology, and Chapter Five reviews science and technology governance and European values. The sixth chapter describes and analyzes values demonstrated in the constitution of the People’s Republic of China. Chapter Seven describes emerging evidence from India on the uses of science and technology for socio-economic development, and the quest for inclusive growth. In Chapter Eight, the authors propose a comparative framework for studying global ethics in science and technology. The following three chapters offer case studies and analysis of three emerging industries in India, China and Europe: new food technologies, nanotechnology and synthetic biology. Chapter 12 gathers all these threads for a comprehensive discussion on incorporating ethics into science and technology policy. The analysis is undertaken against the backdrop of different value systems and varying levels of public perception of risks and benefits. The book introduces a common analytical framework for the comparative discussion of ethics at the international level. The authors offer policy recommendations for effective collaboration among the three regions, to promote responsible governance in science and technology and a common analytical perspective in ethics.

Cicada Spring: A Novel

by Christian Galacar

On a warm May evening in the spring of 1979, the people of Heartsridge, Massachusetts, are living the American dream. Families are gathered for barbecues. Kids are playing in front yards. Gardens are being kept. Meanwhile, Kara Price stumbles home through the woods, raped and beaten, her life shattered by a wicked act of violence, perpetrated by one of the town’s most beloved and public figures.

Surrounding Kara is a cast of compelling and nefarious characters—a violent-tempered mayor who can do no wrong in the eyes of the town, a sheriff bound by the rules and plagued by a guilty conscience, a father bent on revenge, a serial killer in the midst of an identity crisis. And at the center of it all there's Kara, who just wants to move on with her life and forget everything that happened to her. But how can she do that when everyone thinks she is a liar who is only out for attention? With plot and emotion braided together by a careful hand, this haunted group of people all acting on behalf of their own interests begs the question: How far would you go to protect your own?

Interdisciplinary Mathematics Education: The State of the Art and Beyond (ICME-13 Monographs)

by Brian Doig

This open access book is the first major publication on the topic of “Interdisciplinary Mathematics Education” and arose from the work of the first International Topic Study Group of the same name at the ICME-13 conference in Hamburg in 2016. It offers extensive theoretical insights, empirical research, and practitioner accounts of interdisciplinary mathematics work in STEM and beyond (e.g. in music and the arts). Scholars and practitioners from four continents contributed to this comprehensive book, and present studies on: the conceptualizations of interdisciplinarity; implementation cases at schools and tertiary institutions; teacher education; and implications for policy and practice. Each chapter, and the book itself, closes with an assessment of the most significant aspects that those involved in policy and practice, as well as future researchers, should take into account.

Action Recognition (动作识别): Step-by-step Recognizing Actions with Python and Recurrent Neural Network (一步一步地使用 Python 以及循环神经网络对动作进行识别) (Computer Vision and Machine Learning Book 2)

by Mark Magic

Research fields: Computer Vision and Machine Learning.Book Topic: Action recognition from videos.Recognition Tool: Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) with LSTM (Long-Short Term Memory) layer and fully connected layer.Programming Language: Step-by-step implementation with Python in Jupyter Notebook.Major Steps: Building a network, training the network, testing the network, comparing the network with an SVM (Support Vector Machines) classifier.Processing Units to Execute the Codes: CPU and GPU (on Google Colaboratory).Image Feature Extraction Tool: Pretrained VGG16 network.Dataset: UCF101 (the first 15 actions, 2010 videos).Main Results: For the testing data, the highest prediction accuracy from the RNN is 86.97%, which is a little higher than that from the SVM classifier (86.09%).研究领域:计算机视觉以及机器学习。本书主题:视频动作识别。识别工具:具有长短时记忆层(LSTM)和完全连接层的循环神经网络(RNN) 。编程语言:Python(一步一步地在 Jupyter Notebook 中实现)。主要步骤:构建一个循环神经网络,训练该网络,测试该网络,比较该网络与一个 支持向量机(SVM)分类器。处理器:代码可以运行在 CPU 以及 GPU 上(使用了 Google Colaboratory 上的免费 GPU。提取图像特征的工具:预训练的 VGG16 网络。数据集:UCF101 (仅使用了前15个动作,共2010个视频)。主要结果:对于测试数据来说,从循环神经网络得到的最高预测准确度为86.97%,比从支持向量机分类器得到的准确度稍高(86.09%)。Detailed Description:Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) is a great tool to do video action recognition. This book built an RNN with an LSTM (Long-Short Term Memory) layer and a fully connected layer to do video action recognition.The RNN was trained and evaluated with VGG16 Features that were saved in .mat files; the features were extracted from images with a modified pretrained VGG16 network; the images were converted from videos in the UCF101 dataset, which has 101 different actions including 13,320 videos; please notice that only the first 15 actions in this dataset were used to do the recognition.The codes were implemented step-by-step with Python in Jupyter Notebook, and they could be executed on both CPUs and GPUs; free GPUs on Google Colaboratory were used as hardware accelerator to do most of the calculations.For the purpose of getting a higher testing accuracy, the architecture of the network was regulated, and parameters of the network and its optimizer were fine-tuned.For comparison purpose only, an SVM (Support Vector Machines) classifier was trained and tested.For the first 15 actions in the UCF101 dataset, the highest prediction accuracy of the testing data from the RNN is 86.97%, which is a little higher than that from the SVM classifier (86.09%).In conclusion, the performances of the RNN and the SVM classifier are approximately the same for the task in this book, which is a little embarrassed. However, RNN does have its own advantages in many other cases in the fields of Computer Vision and Machine Learning, and the implementation in this book can be an introduction to this topic in order to throw out a minnow to catch a whale.详细描述:循环神经网络(RNN)是进行视频动作识别的一个非常好的工具。本书构建了一个带有长短期记忆(LSTM)层和完全连接层的循环神经网络,来进行视频动作的识别。使用保存在 .mat 文件中的 VGG16 特征,我们对该神经网络进行了训练和评估。这些特征是使用修改过的预训练的 VGG16 网络从图像中提取出来的。这些图像是从 UCF101 数据集中的视频转换而来的。该数据集包含101个不同的动作,共有13320个视频。请读者注意:我们只使用了前15个动作来进行识别。所有代码都在 Jupyter Notebook 中使用 Python 一步一步地来实现的。这些代码都可以在 CPU 和 GPU 上运行。我们使用了 Google Colaboratory 上的免费的 GPU 作为硬件加速器,来完成绝大部分的计算。为了获得更高的测试数据的预测准确度,我们对该神经网络的结构进行了调节,并对该网络及其优化器的参数进行了微调。作为对照,我们还训练了一个支持向量机(SVM)分类器,并使用该分类器对测试数据进行了预测。对于 UCF101 数据集中的前15个动作,由循环神经网络得到的测试数据的最高预测准确度为86.97%,比由支持向量机分类器得到的准确度(86.09%)稍高。总体说来,对于本书中的分类任务,循环神经网络和支持向量机分类器的性能大体相当,这个结果让人有点儿尴尬。但是不管怎样,在计算机视觉和机器学习领域,循环神经网络确实有其不可替代的优点。本书中对循环神经网络的介绍和应用,权当抛砖引玉吧。
