Abstract: Shifts in English/Language Arts standards for the Common Core State Standards require teachers to read more nonfiction texts, increase instruction for content-area specific subjects, and to read more complex texts. The goal of our research was to evaluate the impact of high quality nonfiction picture books on elementary children's understandings of scientific topics related to the natural world. Six high-level kindergarten students at a STEM elementary school were invited to participate in a seven-week long study where students explored scientific topics. The hands-on activities and read alouds were based on books in the Next Time You See series by Emily Morgan, published by the NSTA. Pre/post tests and interviews with each child were conducted to learn more about how each student valued science and learned more about scientific topics. Findings showed an increase in content knowledge and more positive feelings toward forming scientific explanations and communicating scientific understanding.

Abstract: A study published in the journal Pediatrics in 2013 found unsafe levels of bacteria in breast milk bought online. A host of media forums (e.g., newspapers, blogs, public radio) reported the corresponding conclusion that peer breast milk sharing is dangerous. This article presents results from an online survey distributed to women who share milk about their knowledge and opinions regarding the Pediatrics study. Approximately half of participants were aware of the study at the time of the survey. Qualitative evaluations of the study revealed that women who peer milk share used scientific language to question scientific authority, view the sale of milk as morally wrong, and at times expressed ambivalence about the practice itself. These findings suggest that while scientific mothering remains a strong archetype in contemporary mothering for mothers who milk share, the practice of milk sharing is heavily laden with symbolic meaning tied to discourses of purity, morality, and affect.

Abstract: The paper addresses the subject of scientific meetings. Scientific meetings are a sociological paradox -- they are frequently attended and seldom discussed. Considering this premise, the authors propose a reflexive approach of taking the 4S Annual Meeting as a case study. The research is based on mixed methods: a) analysis of a historical database of previous 4S meetings, considering attending authors, their institutional affiliation, origin, papers themes and keywords; b) documental analysis of the programs of previous meetings. We propose the following hypothesis: the 4S meetings were intended as an alternative to traditional, "mertonian" models of scientific communities but its practices often emulate the Matthew effect, especially when considering the geographic distribution of meetings and prizes. This analysis supports a program for "experimental reflexivity", i.e., the use of STS concepts and methods to understand the STS community itself.
