Great Day at the Jill Trinka Workshop!

Last Monday, many NJ schools had the day off. However, numerous NJ elementary music educators took the day to learn from one of the greatest elementary music educators/authors/musicians/clinicians around: Dr. Jill Trinka.

Highlights

There were several highlights from the workshop:

  • Jill is a skilled performer on the guitar, dulcimer, autoharp, and banjo. She started the workshop with the folk song, “When I First Came to this Land” played on her guitar, and ended with a fast-paced, folk dance played on her dulcimer.

INTO ORBIT℠ with 2018 FIRST® LEGO® League competition

Education News - ESA Education - Mon, 10/08/2018 - 10:27

How can I walk my dog on the Moon? What happens if I sneeze in space? Just some of the questions that more than 500 000 children around the world will be asking and attempting to answer over the next months, as part of this year’s FIRST LEGO League competition, a global STEM program with an annual theme that inspires and challenges young engineers and scientists.

In Europe, ESA has teamed up with LEGO Education to provide inspiration, examples and expertise to the teams of children aged 6 to 16 who are competing for a place in the World Finals in Houston and Detroit, USA. To give an additional incentive, on 1 August, ESA astronaut and Space Station commander Alexander Gerst sent a message from orbit, together with a very helpful LEGO colleague!

Five Wonderful Books to Use in Early Elementary Music Class

If you teach elementary music classes, especially younger elementary, then you know the important role that books play in pacing a lesson. If your lesson is 40 minutes, then you want to make sure the students are at least singing, creating music, moving to music, and performing on instruments. However, with all that pacing, and making sure that we are covering what we need to cover, we also need to vary our activities to hold their attention and to find ways to reach every child in the classroom.

Remembering Aretha Franklin

Through research, I found these facts from her life.

Space Systems Engineering is a crucial part of any successful space mission. Focussing on the “big picture”, Space Systems Engineers are tasked with considering user needs from project conception to delivery. Systems Engineering is a diverse topic, and has many synergies and crossovers with other disciplines – both traditional, such as mechanical and electrical engineering – and also fields such as project management and quality assurance.
