There a new meme in the kidlit blogosphere and it's S.T.E.M. Friday.
(Science. Technology. Engineering. Mathematics.)
Although I won't be participating each week, if you're a teacher, you'll definitely want to check out the weekly gathering of STEM Friday bloggers. I'll be hosting the group on October 14, and the rest of the roundup may be found here.

Today's roundup may be found at Archimedes Notebook
