Kamen was disappointed with the number of kids—particularly women and minorities—who considered science and technology careers, and decided to do something about it. As an inventor, he looked for activities that captured the enthusiasm of students, and decided that combining the excitement of sports competition with science and technology had potential

Learning
LEARNING is the act of acquiring new or modifying and reinforcing existing knowledge , behaviors , skills , values , or preferences which may lead to a potential change in synthesizing information, depth of the knowledge, attitude or behavior relative to the type and range of experience. The ability to learn is possessed by humans, animals, plants and some machines . Progress over time tends to follow a learning curve . Learning
Learning
does not happen all at once, but it builds upon and is shaped by previous knowledge. To that end, learning may be viewed as a process, rather than a collection of factual and procedural knowledge. Learning
Learning
produces changes in the organism and the changes produced are relatively permanent. Human learning may occur as part of education , personal development , schooling, or training . It may be goal-oriented and may be aided by motivation . The study of how learning occurs is part of educational psychology , neuropsychology , learning theory , and pedagogy . Learning
Learning
may occur as a result of habituation or classical conditioning , seen in many animal species, or as a result of more complex activities such as play , seen only in relatively intelligent animals. Learning
Learning
may occur consciously or without conscious awareness

Knowledge
KNOWLEDGE is a familiarity, awareness, or understanding of someone or something, such as facts , information , descriptions , or skills , which is acquired through experience or education by perceiving , discovering , or learning . Knowledge can refer to a theoretical or practical understanding of a subject. It can be implicit (as with practical skill or expertise) or explicit (as with the theoretical understanding of a subject); it can be more or less formal or systematic. In philosophy , the study of knowledge is called epistemology ; the philosopher Plato famously defined knowledge as "justified true belief ", though this definition is now thought by some analytic philosophers to be problematic because of the Gettier problems while others defend the platonic definition. However, several definitions of knowledge and theories to explain it exist. Knowledge acquisition involves complex cognitive processes: perception , communication , and reasoning ; while knowledge is also said to be related to the capacity of _acknowledgment_ in human beings.

Skill
A SKILL is the ability to carry out a task with pre-determined results often within a given amount of time , energy , or both. Skills can often be divided into domain general and domain-specific skills. For example, in the domain of work, some general skills would include time management , teamwork and leadership , self -motivation and others, whereas domain-specific skills would be useful only for a certain job . Skill usually requires certain environmental stimuli and situations to assess the level of skill being shown and used. People need a broad range of skills in order to contribute to a modern economy . A joint ASTD and U.S. Department of Labor study showed that through technology , the workplace is changing, and identified 16 basic skills that employees must have to be able to change with it. CONTENTS * 1 Labor skills * 2 Life skills * 3 People skills * 4 Social skills * 5 Soft skills * 6 Hard skills * 7 See also * 8 References * 9 External links LABOR SKILLS Main article: Skill (labor) Skilled workers have long had historical import (_see_ Division of labor ) as electricians , masons , carpenters , blacksmiths , bakers , brewers , coopers , printers and other occupations that are economically productive. Skilled workers were often politically active through their craft guilds

Values
In ethics, VALUE denotes the degree of importance of some thing or action, with the aim of determining what actions are best to do or what way is best to live (normative ethics ), or to describe the significance of different actions. It may be described as treating actions themselves as abstract objects, putting value to them. It deals with right conduct and living a good life, in the sense that a highly, or at least relatively highly, valuable action may be regarded as ethically "good" (adjective sense), and an action of low in value, or somewhat relatively low in value, may be regarded as "bad". What makes an action valuable may in turn depend on the ethic values of the objects it increases, decreases or alters. An object with "ethic value" may be termed an "ethic or philosophic good" (noun sense). Values can be defined as broad preferences concerning appropriate courses of action or outcomes. As such, values reflect a person's sense of right and wrong or what "ought" to be. "Equal rights for all", "Excellence deserves admiration", and "People should be treated with respect and dignity" are representative of values. Values tend to influence attitudes and behavior. Types of values include ethical /moral values, doctrinal /ideological (religious, political) values, social values, and aesthetic values

* v * t * e BELIEF is the state of mind in which a person thinks something to be the case, with or without there being empirical evidence to prove that something is the case with factual certainty. Another way of defining belief sees it as a mental representation of an attitude positively oriented towards the likelihood of something being true . In the context of Ancient Greek thought , two related concepts were identified with regards to the concept of belief: _pistis _ and _doxa _. Simplified, we may say that _pistis_ refers to "trust" and "confidence", while _doxa_ refers to "opinion" and "acceptance". The English word "orthodoxy " derives from _doxa_. Jonathan Leicester suggests that belief has the purpose of guiding action rather than indicating truth. In epistemology , philosophers use the term "belief" to refer to personal attitudes associated with true or false ideas and concepts. However, "belief" does not require active introspection and circumspection. For example, we never ponder whether or not the sun will rise. We simply assume the sun will rise

Habit (psychology)
A HABIT (or WONT) is a routine of behavior that is repeated regularly and tends to occur subconsciously. The American Journal of Psychology (1903) defines a "habit, from the standpoint of psychology, a more or less fixed way of thinking, willing, or feeling acquired through previous repetition of a mental experience." Habitual behavior often goes unnoticed in persons exhibiting it, because a person does not need to engage in self-analysis when undertaking routine tasks. Habits are sometimes compulsory. New behaviours can become automatic through the process of HABIT FORMATION. Old habits are hard to break and new habits are hard to form because the behavioural patterns which humans repeat become imprinted in neural pathways, but it is possible to form new habits through repetition. When behaviors are repeated in a consistent context, there is an incremental increase in the link between the context and the action. This increases the automaticity of the behavior in that context. Features of an automatic behavior are all or some of: * efficiency * lack of awareness * unintentionality * uncontrollabilityCONTENTS * 1 Formation * 2 Goals * 3 Nervousness * 4 Bad habits * 4.1 Will and intention * 4.2 Elimination * 5 See also * 6 References * 7 Further reading * 8 External links FORMATION Habit

Discussion
CONVERSATION is interactive, communication between two or more people. The development of conversational skills and etiquette is an important part of socialization . The development of conversational skills in a new language is a frequent focus of language teaching and learning . Conversation analysis is a branch of sociology which studies the structure and organization of human interaction, with a more specific focus on conversational interaction.

Consequently, the term is often defined by what it is not. A ritualized exchange such as a mutual greeting is not a conversation, and an interaction that includes a marked status differential (such as a boss giving orders) is also not a conversation. An interaction with a tightly focused topic or purpose is also generally not considered a conversation
