editor’s note

Science. Technology. Engineering. Math. Four important cornerstones of academic education and the development of our future. What differentiates STEM from conventional subjects are it’s basis on real-world applications and the inter-disciplinary approach that it takes. Surely it’s more useful to show how scientific methods can be applied to everyday life rather than say just learning trigonometry to pass an exam? However STEM is not widely taught and there are a lack of teachers who are qualified to. Another aspect of these programmes is that they aim to attract underrepresented demographics, such as young girls. After all, every young person should all be given equal opportunities. As always we love to continue hearing feedback from our readers. Get in touch at: info@geekparenting.tv…

the geeky monthly

SAMSUNG GALAXY FOLD Why have a separate phone and tablet when you can have both in one device. The Samsung Galaxy Fold folds in half from a 7.3 inch tablet to a 4.6 inch phone. It will have 12GB of RAM and 512GB storage, six cameras (three on the back, two on the big screen and one on the phone screen). It will be released on April 26. CAPTAIN MARVEL This March, the long awaited debut of Marvel’s first female lead superhero arrives. After being teased in Infinity War, this movie takes place in the 90s, so expect a lot of references for that time period (a great one!). We will see a origin-esque story of how Carol Danvers came to be Captain Marvel and also why one of the most powerful Avengers…

Dangerous AI An AI text generator - those things that can type out hilariously psychedelic and nonsensical scripts and short stories - has been deemed to dangerous to be released to the public. This is because GPT2, as this particular one is called, is actually very good at writing. Built by an organisation funded by Elon Musk, all it needs is a few lines and it can create an entire article with the same tone and subject. It’s creators are worried it will be used for malicious intent. Climate Strike On February 15th, schoolchildren across the UK (and other parts of the world) went on strike to march about the lack of action being taken on climate change. It is great to see the next generation taking a keen interest in such subjects,…

women in stem

On the 8th March, we celebrate International Women’s Day, following the theme of #BalanceforBetter. A day which celebrates the movement of women’s rights and at Geek Parenting we want to play our part in highlighting women who have changed the course of history over time and those who continue to do so in today’s world. EVENING OUT THE BALANCE It is widely known, and yes also criticised, that when it comes to STEM careers, it is very male-dominated. In fact, in the UK only 22% of the STEM workforce is female. In the US this statistic is 50% (although it is widely noted that this is only in STEM industries and others it is significantly unrepresented). Shockingly this figure is at an all-time low in Australia, where the total of women in working in STEM is…

fitness gadgets

January and February are notable for two main reasons; they are the months that see both the highest divorce rates and the peak in gym membership. While the two probably aren’t linked, it does demonstrate a desire by many to get their lives and bodies back into some kind of decent shape – possibly because they are going to be dating again. But one thing is certain; almost no one doing extensive exercise should be seen without some kind of gadget, and there are so many to choose from. And its not all wearables either. There are some fantastic devices that can make your new fitness regime not only successful, but fun too! FITT Cube Marketed as a gym in a box, FITT Cube brings full workouts to your living room or…
