More STEM Zombies

August 15, 2013

Yesterday ZombieLaw wrote about Zombie Common Core and STEM Hollywood Science – their site: Stem Behind Hollwood – Stem of the Living Dead with Miyam Bialik and Steve Schlozman featured today in USNews: “More Brains? Teaching STEM by Studying Zombies” by Lylah Alphonse:

“I think the really interesting part is we model what it would really look like if there was a virus or a zombie pandemic,” says Bialik . “This becomes an opportunity to teach not only some basic graphing, but also some complicated notions about saturation point and exponential increase and what it’s like to have shifting populations of infected vs. non-infected [people].”

And Wired: “The Best Way to Teach Kids Math and Science? Zombies” by Angela Watercutter:

Yes, zombies. Zombies on graphing calculators, no less.
