Study Shows Spirit of Adventure and Discovery in Science Shifting to Emerging Countries

Thu November 17, 2011

Lenovo today announced the results of the 2011 Global Student Science and Technology Outlook that assessed the attitudes of students around the world in how they view pursuits and careers in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM).

Some key highlights of the survey include:

  • If given the choice between taking a trip to the moon or to any place on Earth, 40% of Canadian students chose the moon and 60% would rather stay on Earth.
  • Fifty-five (55) per cent of Canadian students feel that it’s very important for Canada to lead the world in science-related fields. This is the lowest percentage of students with that opinion amongst the countries surveyed, and is significantly lower than the global average of 69%.
  • Canadian students indicated that parents and teachers have the strongest influence in shaping their career choices (24% for both categories). Similarly, Canadian students are most influenced by parents and teachers when it comes to pursuing careers in science and technology (21% and 23% respectively).
  • When asked about which factors made respondents feel hesitant about pursuing a career in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM), some of Canadian students’ replies included:
    o Lack of confidence and ability to do well: 28% (global average of 29%)
    o It involves too much work and schooling: 22% (global average of
    21%)
    o There aren’t many STEM career choices: 19% (compared to the global average of 15%)
  • STEM careers are no longer perceived as male dominant. When asked about whether STEM careers are more suitable for men, 63% of Canadian students replied no.

While the analysis suggests that a number of these results are cause for concern about the future of the next generation in STEM-related fields, there are possible solutions for engaging students and fostering their interest in the sciences. Programs like Lenovo’s partnership with YouTube Space Lab ( http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/youtube-space-lab-lifts-off-with-lenovo-aboard-sehk-992-1571355.htm
), a worldwide initiative that challenges 14 to 18 year-old students around the world to design a science experiment that can be performed in space, provide students with the mentorship (by world-class judges) and incentives (like astronaut training and technology prizes) to encourage participation in and pursuit of STEM-related activities and careers.

Jae Yoon spent two weeks in Switzerland and put his Sony NEX-5N (besides other cameras) to task. The 5N’s weak AA filter, paired with the Contax 45mm F2 and 28mm F2.8 G lenses captured “super sharp super contrasty Zeiss look” pictures of this beautiful country.

2012 Leica Oskar Barnack Award Call For Entries

Thu November 17, 2011

INVITATION TO SUBMIT ENTRIES FOR THE 2012 LEICA OSKAR BARNACK AWARD

Solms, Germany (November 16, 2011) – Leica Camera AG invites professional photographers to submit entries to the Leica Oskar Barnack Award, an international photography competition. Photographers wishing to take part may submit their projects online between January 16 and March 1, 2012. The terms and conditions of entry can be downloaded from www.leica-oskar-barnack-award.com shortly before the start of the competition.

The winner of the 2012 Leica Oskar Barnack Award will receive a Leica M9-P camera with lens worth approximately €10,000 (approximately US $14,000) in addition to a cash prize of €5,000. A second honor will be awarded in the category ‘Leica Oskar Barnack Newcomer Award’, for (aspiring) professional photographers aged 25 and under. The winner of the first prize in this section will also be awarded a Leica M9-P complete with lens.

Competition entry conditions: An international jury awards the Leica Oskar Barnack Award/Leica Oskar Barnack Newcomer Award to photographers whose unerring powers of observation capture and express the relationship between man and their environment in graphic form in a portfolio of up to 12 images. Submissions must be a self-contained series of images in which the photographer perceives and documents the interaction between man and his environment with acute vision and contemporary visual style – creative, unobtrusive and groundbreaking.

With this competition, Leica Camera AG remembers Oskar Barnack (1879–1936), the inventor of the Leica. From 1914 on, he increasingly used the prototype camera he developed, the so-called Ur-Leica, for photography. The history of photojournalism is closely tied to his invention, as, beginning in 1925, the compact and easily carried Leica cameras were instrumental in enabling entirely new and expressive forms of photography.
