Here’s some refreshing good news, courtesy of a new study released last week in Science Advances. Teens in Seattle got more sleep, were less tardy, and even did better in class after schools across the area delayed their start times by about an hour.
In every classroom from prep to Year 10, children in schools will learn coding skills and get hands-on with robotics in Queensland as the state becomes the first in Australia to mandate in-depth computer programming training.
If there’s anything that can inspire kids to pay more attention in science class, it’s robots. Cars are potentially a close second — which is why the hands-on ‘Ford Fuels Innovation’ event touring Australian schools seems perfectly on track to achieve its goal.
