MegaByte & Sublimation demonstrate principles of pH to students
Two years ago, University Beat introduced you to the Scientific League of Superheroes – a trio of USF graduate students who don colorful costumes and use comic book scenarios to teach science, technology, engineering and math to younger students. And like all superhero blockbusters, it’s time for a sequel! The group has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds for the next phase of their educational videos and accompanying materials. We have the story on University Beat on WUSF TV.

Florida Education Commissioner Pam Stewart is expected to recommend a test to (mostly) replace the FCAT later this month. A new test is needed because Florida is finishing the switch to new K-12 math, language arts and literacy standards this fall. The standards are largely based on Common Core standards fully adopted by 44 other states and the District of Columbia. There's also big money riding on the contract. Pearson currently holds a five-year, $249 million contract to administer the FCAT. The new test is expected to cost about as much per student as the FCAT. Five companies -- ACT Aspire, American Institutes for Research, CTB/McGraw-Hill, McCann Associates and Pearson -- bid to become the next FCAT. A state panel has recommended AIR, but the decision is Stewart's.

StoryCorps is recording the oral history of people in its MobileBooth, parked in front of the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg. In this episode of Florida Matters, we will hear excerpts of some of the conversations that have been recorded so far. "We ask pairs of people to come together, friends or loved ones, to come together and talk for 40 minutes, to ask each other questions, to have a conversation they might not have on a typical day. And at the end of that 40 minutes they get a CD to take home," said Eliza Bettinger, the site supervisor at the MobileBooth. "And another CD, if they give permission, is archived at the Library of Congress, where we’re creating the largest archive that’s ever been collected of regular Americans, or people living in America. And then also, in addition to that, a few of those interviews are excerpted and played on the radio, either nationally on Morning Edition or locally, with our local radio station partners, like WUSF." StoryCorps offers tips on how you can make recordings of the people who mean the most in your life at its website.
