Miss Mayim her STEM cred, though. No, that comes from her PhD is neuroscience. (ahem)
For a child star, she's grown up to be an incredibly grounded woman. Some might say a bit too grounded and earthy-crunchy, but I think she's pretty cool.
The folks at Texas Instruments are betting that people a lot younger and hipper than me think that Mayim's pretty cool, too. They are offering schools a chance to bring the Emmy-nominated actress to teach an integrated math/science lesson. The winning class will also receive a bunch of coll stuff from Texas Instruments, including some TI-Nspire CX handhelds, devices with more computing power than the green screen TRS-80 that I used while Mayim was still cutting her teeth.
The entry process is pretty simple, just answer two basic questions on a special tab on the TI Education Technology Facebook page. Basically, students are asked to share (in less than 200 words) how math and science students will benefit from having the devices. I'm guessing entrants must be 13 or older, since that was part of Facebook's TOS last I checked.
