Going beyond the stereotypes to meet some real-life experts in science, technology, engineering and mathematics — the so-called STEM fields. My feature story in Science News for Kids (opens in a new window).
Up now: Three-part series on drones
Public perceptions of drones are often based on factors not specific to the drones themselves — government intrusion, loss of privacy, possibility of attack. During “The Drone Next Door“, a May 7 event hosted by Future Tense, panelists discussed current and future technologies, legal and regulatory issues, uses and misuses of unmanned vehicles. The drone plane providing the dramatic aerial shots of your kid’s wedding could come back and peek through your bathroom window tomorrow. The bottom line: it isn't the technology itself, but how we choose to use it.
