We’ve seen those breathtaking videos of natural landscapes, watched synchronized LED light performances at the Super Bowl, or even read about commercial drone package delivery. Drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have served their initial purpose of military reconnaissance and supported developments in agriculture, photography and film, and even search and rescue operations. They’ve recently made their way into education, and it becomes important for our educators to examine the opportunities and precautions when implementing lessons involving new technology. This year, TGR EDU: Create introduced drone workshops during our STEM Studio professional development trainings for educators that focused on promoting computer science concepts and how STEM thinking has contributed to the current application of drones.
PARAMUS, N.J. – Never mind the finish, Tiger Woods had many reasons to feel good about his performance this week at The Northern Trust.

PARAMUS, N.J. – For the first time since 2006, Tiger Woods started a round by hitting 14 consecutive greens in regulation. Unfortunately, his putter didn’t cooperate.

The Expanded Learning Program at the TGR Learning Lab welcomes middle and high school students in Anaheim, CA to the safe halls of our facility to benefit from academic support and hands-on learning experiences.
ST. LOUIS – Turns out Carnoustie was an appetizer. Tiger Woods never led like he did on the closing nine at the Open last month, but he drew within a shot of the top-spot Sunday with heart and fight at sun-baked Bellerive Country Club in the final round of the 100th PGA Championship. It was […]

Computers have always enthralled me. As a child, I was spellbound by my family’s old Dell computer. For nearly a decade, I would go onto different websites solely to learn more about computers. It didn’t always come easily – like when I installed a virus trying to make a website – but I ultimately grew very comfortable behind a keyboard. I sought to understand the mechanics of computers, and I built my own computer the same year I took my AP Computer Science course. My passion for computers has led me to many exciting opportunities.
ST. LOUIS – Tiger Woods dug a deep hole Thursday in the first round of the 100th PGA Championship at sweltering Bellerive Country Club.
