Find A Place To STEM Out!

Sometimes we need to be around like-minded people in order to appreciate our own intelligence. Sometimes we strive for the feeling of seeing other people enjoy what we do, know what we do, and want to learn more about what we do. Sometimes it’s valuable for our youth to see everyone around them as ambitious individuals.

Seminars such as the one in the below video work as a tool of empowerment for our youth.  STEM programs (science, technology, engineering, and math) are forever growing in high schools and colleges and it’s important to keep that interest alive!




Although the summer is just about over and enrollment has already started, this seminars and weekend getaways happen all year round. This video was filmed in December at Carver College of Medicine.

Take a look around your local neighborhood! Or take a trip with your children! Explore what the world has to offer for your child’s future. It’s never too late to introduce the youth of tomorrow to a program that could benefit them today.

Finally! Affordable Tech Based Toys!

We at Osiris pride ourselves on introducing technology to children and young adults. Gaining an interest in technology at a young age builds the bridge toward incorporating technology into future endeavors.

As quickly as technology evolves around us, it’s important to make technology fun and simple to understand for beginning tech enthusiasts. We stumbled across a Consumer Reports video from winter holiday time of 2015. The video shares six fun and interactive toys that get children interested in the possibilities of working with technology.



We not only decided to share the video with you, we also decided to show where to get more information about the toys in the video! Enjoy!

Why Tech Entrepreneurs Should Attend College

Attending college is more than acquiring a degree in a particular field of study. It’s about becoming a part of a community so that you can begin to have new experiences, make partnerships, and learn from the people around you.
 
In the video below Nichole Pinkard, professor of computing and digital media at DePaul University, states that she is impressed that the digital software classes are in the same building as photography. 


Why is that important?


When you enter the world of computer programming, you begin to work on projects to aid or entertain people in their daily lives. There is nothing new under the sun. Many thoughts and ideas have been imagined, but not all have been executed. Even the ones that have been executed could always be improved by looking at them with a different perspective.

That’s what the college experience does for your mind. The college experience opens up a new world of inspiration. Many of us seek inspiration to finish or begin a project. On a college campus, around every corner, there is a new person with a new need to aid or a new experience to share.

College is about learning. Not just from your books, not just from your professors, but also from every other student who has a different outlook on life from your own. You’d be surprised what stories you hear from complete strangers that spark your next entrepreneurial idea.
