Vote Here to Help More Students Learn AI & Data Science!

There are few things that are more important than AI & Data Science for kids to learn today. Yet, most students don’t have a remote opportunity to teach them. Luckily, now you can help us change that by voting for our SXSW EDU 2020 session proposal. Just click on the link and vote!

Hopefully you all know by now that, at Create & Learn, we are very passionate about bringing the next generation of Computer Science education to students, grades K-9. SXSW EDU is a premier education conference. We are proposing a session that that will help more parents and educators understand the importance of learning these subjects and how they can teach it too! Watch the video below and help bring AI & Data Science to more students by voting for our SXSW EDU 2020 session proposal!

The Evolution of Listening to Music

Sony changed how we listen to music in July of 1979 when they released the “Walkman.” If you don’t remember (or maybe it was before your time), this was this very first introduction to headphones attached to something you could take on a “walk” with you. Obviously, this idea really took off, and is definitely the norm now. But how did this one invention kickstart how we listen to music now? Read all about it here!

The First “Robobee” Takes Flight!

Harvard researchers have been working hard to have bee-sized robots take successful untethered flights, and it looks like that’s finally happened. Their “Robobee” took flight earlier this year, and it was even caught on video! But what does this mean for the future of tiny robots? And what could they be used for? Find out all about it, and watch the fascinating video, here!

Your Favorite Toy, Hot Wheels, Is Driving into the Virtual World

Remember playing with Hot Wheels growing up, building elaborate tracks to see which cars could handle each turn? Kids today are still enjoying them, but the age at which they’re switching from physical toys to tablets is dropping, and Hot Wheels is looking to get virtual to keep up. Also new to technology are MIT’s “roboats” that are able to target and latch onto each other. And up in space, the International Astronomical Union is letting the world vote for the names of stars they find. Read all about it in this week’s Tech News 4 Kids newsletter! Join our classes to learn all about the latest technologies — coding, artificial intelligence, and more.

Hot Wheels & the Race to Adapt to Tablet-Culture

We all had them growing up: Hot Wheels. It’s actually still the number-one selling toy, but the time with which kids are playing with these toys is decreasing drastically each year, and technology is mostly to blame. However, Hot Wheels is looking to adapt to the times with virtual games, but what will this mean for its future? See what their plans are here!

Are “Roboats” the Future of Water Transportation?

In Amsterdam, where canals flow through the city, MIT researchers are crating “roboats” that can target and latch onto each other. These studies are in efforts to use robot technology as useful, everyday tools. In fact, collecting trash out of the water is one of the abilities of the “roboats”! What’s next for the future of these boats? Find out by checking out this article here!

Find an Exoplanet & Name It

It’s the International Astronomical Union’s 100th birthday, and they are celebrating by letting the world name exoplanets (everything else in the sky that aren’t planets or stars). Now, it’s not just any exoplanets, and you have to find it first, but it doesn’t mean you don’t still get to say ‘finders keepers.’ So far, some really interesting names have been suggested! (Hint: Lord of the Rings.) Read all about how you can join in the search here!
