This Week in STEM: Earth Day and the Lab Rules Song

At Concept Schools, we get a little bit excited about all things related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). We always keep an eye out for what’s going on in STEM in the news. Each week we will share what we think is awesome and worth learning about.

We can’t share all of the amazing things happening in STEM: leave a comment with your favorite STEM news from this week.

EarthTime shows us how humans are quickly changing the planet

A new website called EarthTime shows us graphic evidence of how humans are rapidly changing the earth. You can view the entire earth and its changes from 1984 to 2016, but you can also zoom in and focus on corners of the earth where deforestation, coral bleaching, and pollution have affected the landscape of our world.
