A revolution is underway in science classrooms. The demands of the new workplace and the ready access to information afforded by new technologies have radically changed the way we define a scientifically literate society.
More than ever teachers need professional development that provides them with the resources they need and empowers them to take the action required to build classrooms where the next generation of scientifically literate students will flourish.
U.S. foreign policy has a huge impact on the world. That impact is widely debated among Americans and by people in many countries. Our goal in this course is to gain more understanding of what U.S. foreign policy is, who makes it, why is it the way it

Handheld systems, such as smartphones and tablets are now the most
common way for people to access and interact with computing services. The demand for application
development skills is therefore growing at a breathtaking pace. These skills, however, are multi-‐
faceted, requiring students to master computer science and engineering principles, to learn the
details of specific mobile application platforms, and to design artistic and engaging user interfaces
that respond to how, where and why handheld applications are used.
