Prof. Tomasz Goslar, "Polski Nobel" 2014 w obszarze nauk o życiu i o Ziemi nagrodzono prof. Tomasza Goslara z Uniwersytetu im. Adama Mickiewicza w Poznaniu za kluczowy dla współczesnych badań klimatycznych wkład w ustalenie chronologii zmian stężenia izotopu węgla C14 w atmosferze podczas ostatniego zlodowacenia. Laureat jest światowej klasy ekspertem w dziedzinie badań najmłodszego czwartorzędu: okresu, który rozpoczął się 2,58 mln lat temu i trwa do dziś. "Wyniki interdyscyplinarnych badań prof. Goslara i zaproponowane przez niego nowe rozwiązania metodologiczne są niezwykle istotne dla badań np. nad szybkością reakcji ekosystemów na zmiany klimatu. Mają także istotny wpływ na wiele dziedzin, geologię mórz, heliofizykę, paleobiologię i modelowanie klimatu"

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) ... student may have thought he’d understood it at the time, and perhaps he did, but he’d never practiced using the concept to truly internalize it. ... The problem with focusing relentlessly on understanding is that math and science students can often grasp essentials of an important idea, but this understanding can quickly slip away without consolidation through practice and repetition. Worse, students often believe they understand something when, in fact, they don’t. By championing the importance of understanding, teachers can inadvertently set their students up for failure as those students blunder in illusions of competence. ... interesting connection between learning math and science, and learning a sport. /14-10-09
