Hispanics in Florida are Setting the New Higher Education Trend

For several years now, President Obama has been stressing the importance of higher education levels for all Americans. In order to be internationally competitive – which is becoming more and more important in today’s age – we have to have more people pursuing a college-level education. But where can this trend start? How do we convince parents who did not earn a higher education to encourage their children to further their studies? The answer could be the largest growing minority group in the U.S.: Hispanics.

Hispanics are expected to create the vast majority of our nation’s population growth between now and 2050. Currently, Hispanics comprise a little more than 20 percent of pre-kindergarten students through high school seniors. These students have not been known for pursuing a higher education in the past; in fact, for years they have had lower college graduation rates than the general population.

This is everyday life for Brianna, Tamara, and Sydney Collins, daughters of James Collins and Felicia Blue. The couple has six children and the entire family currently lives in a 13′ x 15′ room with three bunk beds at a homeless shelter.

Rat Dissection App Saves Rats and Teaches Science

In 2010, Emantras Interactive Technology saved frogs across the nation from becoming science project experiments, a.k.a. being dissected in biology classrooms. Personally, I had a traumatic experience in high school when I had to dissect a frog and there is no way in the world that anyone could convince me to do it again. So, when I heard about the Frog Dissection iPad App, I was very happy. Now, I’m even happier because Emantras came out with another anti-dissection app to help students learn about biology without harming an animal. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the Rat Dissection App.

The Rat Dissection App is very similar to the Frog Dissection App in that it allows you to “dissect” a rat in 11 steps and then to learn about its internal organs. You use real dissection tools, such as a scalpel, pins, and scissors, to dissect the rat. Then, once you have completely dissected the rat, you can look at the heart, stomach, intestines, kidneys, lungs, pancreas, liver, and spleen. Each organ has a detailed description of what the organ does and a realistic picture to show you what it really looks like.
