    SPARTANBURG SCIENCE MUSEUM TEACHES STEM USING ROBOTICS
     
       Science, technology, engineering and math, all subjects that still invoke fear and lack of interest in too many of our students. But, Megan Rudolph with the Spartanburg Science Museum at the Chapman Cultural Center has found out about a way that works for children of all ages; and when they're really, really young, they don't even know they're learning it.
       This weekend the Spartanburg Science Museum presents its First Lego League Spartanburg Qualifier Competition, and it will be a blast for anyone - of any age - who wants to attend and see what's happening.
       The First Lego League isn't new; it's just new to Spartanburg, and the purpose of this ingenious idea is to teach STEM courses beginning at a very young age and going all the way up to high school and beyond. And, since businesses and even senior citizens are beginning to get involved in technology, and the world is getting ahead of us in training workers in these fields, FLL is a program to watch.
       Join me as Megan Rudolph shares what to expect for those who want to attend on Saturday.

    For many,  education is a necessity to start a new career, to move up the ladder in your current career or even just for fun. Community Colleges have become the hub of that type of learning in North Carolina – as well as other states – and the perfect place to start can be through Continuing Education. For example, I first saw an e-mail from Marnie Beaver here at Isothermal Community College about a class called 'Creating Mobile Apps with HTML5'.  I was literally blown away. I had no idea that our little college, in a county that doesn't yet even have broadband everywhere, would have a class that could teach me how to create my own apps for my Smart Phone. Then, when I started talking with Marnie about this one class, I quickly realized that it was just the tip of the iceberg for anyone interested in learning just about anything you could name. Tune in to learn what you can learn about learning.

    North Carolina has staked its claim as the state where the real first gold rush took place. The documentary entitled "Gold Fever and the Bechtler Mint" was filmed in Rutherford County and other locations across the state, and was produced and directed by UNC-TV's Scott Davis. The movie tells the story of the Bechtler Mint during the years when North Carolina was the major gold-mining state, and of Christopher Bechtler of Rutherfordton, who, in 1832, minted the first one-dollar gold coin in the nation - 17 years before the U.S. Mint.

    The 30-minute documentary will debut in Rutherfordton, NC, this Saturday evening at 7 p.m. at Rutherford-Spindale High School, and admission is free. The documentary will then air on UNC-TV statewide on Tuesday, October 2nd at 9 p.m. and again on Thursday, October 4th at 9 p.m. Don't miss this interview about just one of the many fascinating historical stories in Rutherford County, NC.

    President Eisenhower was a war hero as well as a President. But how many of us can really remember hearing anything much about his two terms as President of the United States? Author Evan Thomas turns the lights on a President in the vein of John Wayne: Tough, but a man who worked mostly behind the scenes using surrogates to act on his behalf. It was all a part of his two-term struggle to never tell anyone what he was really thinking about pending wars, the use of the nuclear weapon, his compassion and understanding of how the world really works, and his long-term serious illnesses. Join me as I talk to Evans about this US President that could teach a thing or two to almost every president since - or before, for that matter.

     I've only recently become a cookbook junkie. It came about because I decided it was time to start eating healthy food because I plan to live to be 150 years old.
     The MOM 100 Cookbook is actually for moms with young children who are picky eaters, to teach them to be more adventurous as they grow their palates along with their bodies.
     But I - and apparently many other cookbook readers - told Katie that it's a great cookbook for adults as well. I learned a long time ago that I like to cook when I can, but got most of my skills and recipes from TV Cooking Shows. Now I'm learning how much I've missed by not reading cookbooks from cover to cover.

    Written as a primer on the music business from the bottom of the pile, Jeter has documented his years as co-owner of the Handlebar in Greenville, SC, with a sense of humor and fascinating stories.

    Jeter and his brother decided to enter the Concert Hall business with absolutely no experience, but a shared love of good music. From the tremendous learning curve required to learn the business to the ridiculous demands put into booking contracts, this book is a great read from the first page to the last.

    National Anti-Bullying Month provides many opportunities to teach children how to deal with bullies, whether in school, on the playground, or even in their own neighborhood.
     However, from a martial arts expert and his wife comes a truly unique approach to the subject of bullying and how to deal with it.
      'Life Ki-do Parenting: Tools to Raise Happy, Confident Kids from the Inside Out', is a project of Jonathan and Lana Hewitt. It takes a 'back to basics' approach to helping parents bring up their children by giving them confidence, happiness and a consideration of others.

    The North Carolina Mountains are beautiful, but they're not just pretty to look at; they are incredible for anyone who wants to get outside and enjoy them. The Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy is a land trust that works in WNC - mainly in Henderson, Rutherford, Transylvania, Polk and Buncombe counties. The Conservancy has just released a new version of its popular program to get people out the house and outside exploring the lands that are being conserved. The program is called the White House Squirrel Hiking Challenge 2.0. Peter Barr will explain the program, the challenge, and how you can get more than just good exercise.

Purcell, a professional engineer, has written a book not only about the importance of these fields, but about how few women are entering these fields.
