STEM Behind Hollywood: TI-Nspire™ Technology, Zombies and More

Technology: TI‑Nspire™ Technology
Topic: Teaching Resources
Speakers: Dr. Mayim Bialik, Dr. Steven Schlozman

STEM Behind Hollywood is an exciting new program that shows students how real-world science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) bring Hollywood magic to life on the big screen.

In this webinar, Mayim Bialik, a neuroscientist on TV and in real life, will discuss the STEM Behind Hollywood program and the powerful TI-Nspire™ learning platform. Dr. Steve Schlozman, Hollywood’s go-to expert on zombie science, will discuss Zombie Apocalypse, a TI-Nspire™ activity that explores infection rates and models the hypothetical development of zombie-like symptoms. Zombie Apocalypse is the first of four free TI-Nspire™ activities created for STEM Behind Hollywood. Others being developed by leading educators and scientists show students how science and math add reality to movies about superheroes, space and forensics. You’ve never seen math and science like this before – and you’ll never watch movies the same way again! (2013)
