‘Coviducation’: Teen volunteers create website to educate young students on COVID-19 in Sarasota Co.

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Explaining school safety measures in light of the coronavirus pandemic to young children can be difficult. Prior to students returning to in-person classes, the Sarasota County Board of Education expressed concerns about a lack of resources targeted to the youngest students.

The board turned to Sarasota’s Suncoast Science Center’s Faulhaber Fab Lab, a resource for children and adults who want to learn more about science and technology, for assistance. The Suncoast Science Center Student Community Innovation Program provides high school and college students an opportunity to give back to their community by helping to solve a problem facing it.

“The Fab Lab was looking for opportunities to help the community and provide innovative responses to COVID,” said Mimi Faulhaber, a team leader for Fab Lab projects.

A group of teen volunteers took on the challenge of delivering a product, in short order, that the school system

Major quantum computational breakthrough is shaking up physics and maths

MIP* = RE is not a typo. It is a groundbreaking discovery and the catchy title of a recent paper in the field of quantum complexity theory. Complexity theory is a zoo of “complexity classes”—collections of computational problems—of which MIP* and RE are but two.


The 165-page paper shows that these two classes are the same. That may seem like an insignificant detail in an abstract theory without any real-world application. But physicists and mathematicians are flocking to visit the zoo, even though they probably don’t understand it all. Because it turns out the discovery has astonishing consequences for their own disciplines.

In 1936, Alan Turing showed that the Halting Problem—algorithmically deciding whether a computer program halts or loops forever—cannot be solved. Modern computer science was born. Its success made the impression that soon all practical problems would yield to the tremendous power of the computer.

No internet? The unusual ways some Kansas City area students access online classes

Knowing that several of his kids’ friends are relying on cellphone data or spotty internet to stream hours-long Zoom classes each day, Brian Connell decided to turn his Olathe basement into a classroom.

His family enjoys gigabit speed from Google Fiber. But he said many of his daughter’s classmates at Olathe North High School are hanging on by a thread, relying on sluggish internet to get through the school day. So he’s opened his doors, offering access to his Wi-Fi and extra computers.

“There’s a huge discrepancy,” he said. “We’re really worried about them. It’s not equal.”

But it’s not just a problem for some Olathe students: With most urban and suburban schools in the Kansas City area relying on virtual education or hybrid models of teaching during the pandemic, many local school systems and families have been scrambling to find ways to keep their kids connected — a

Six months after schools closed amid the coronavirus crisis and with online learning in full swing, tens of thousand of students remain without adequate digital access and school districts in Los Angeles County report they still need nearly 50,000 computers and Wi-Fi hot spots.

The numbers are a stark reminder that technology access continues to pose a significant barrier to distance learning as schools in Los Angeles County will not be allowed to fully reopen until at least November.

“I’m very concerned if there’s even a small fraction of students who aren’t accessing, especially when we’re talking about students who are already more vulnerable and disadvantaged,” said Debra Duardo, superintendent of the L.A. County Office of Education. “There is already a gap, whether you want to call it
