A STEM Take on Poetry and Music: Electrified Haiku, Your Brain on Jazz, and 30 Years of Winners
In this month’s issue, we honor National Poetry Month and Jazz Appreciation Month, by combining the right and left brain sides of STEM: the mathematical structure behind poems, your brain’s response to rhythm, beat, and harmony, and some poetic circuitry.
As we gear up for the State Math and Science Competitions (now known as STEM competitions), we remember that STEM skills are everywhere, from the laboratory to the stage!
