I have spent the last few days working on and developing this website to help student become producers of information not just consumers. For me, the study and development of the cronstructivist theory resonates deep within my personhood.
Science Article - "Star Trek Style Tractor Beam' Created by Scientists"
Summary: Scientists have used light to cause a pulling effect on an object instead of a pushing effect which normally happens.
Personal thoughts: It is cool to think that this could one day be used to hold things without moving or cause them to move closer.
Science Article - "DNA perfect for digital storage"
Author: Jonathan Amos
Summary: DNA can be kept in stable format for 1000's of years without electricity or degradation, which allows us to keep information for a LONG time.
Personal thoughts: I think it is interesting to think that the technology used to read (and maybe even the English language will change so much) the information on the DNA will need to be modified to match the technology and the language of the time.
