A two generation lens: Current state policies fail to support families with young children
(Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health) Recent two generation approaches to reducing poverty that help children and their parents are receiving increasing attention. By combining education and training for parents, these programs aim to improve the life opportunities of both.

Video games could dramatically streamline educational research
(Washington State University) A Washington State University professor has figured out a dramatically easier and more cost-effective way to do research on science curriculum in the classroom -- and it could include playing video games.Called 'computational modeling,' it involves a computer 'learning' student behavior and then 'thinking' as students would. Rich Lamb, who teaches science education at WSU's College of Education, said the process could revolutionize the way educational research is done.

Trial begins for MRI-compatible robot designed to improve accuracy of prostate biopsies
(Worcester Polytechnic Institute) A novel robot that can operate inside the bore of an MRI scanner is currently being tested as part of a biomedical research partnership program at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston with the aim of determining if the robot, in conjunction with real-time MRI images, can make prostate cancer biopsies faster, more accurate, less costly, and less discomforting. The system also has the potential to deliver prostate cancer therapies with greater precision.
