We have the STEAM LEGO kits for kindergarten. Our district has designed lessons based on all of the themes with the kits. It is awesome. I also use Scratch for coding. I highly recommend starting a First LEGO League team at your school too

Sound good!!!thank youuu

I am a certified Art and General Science teacher. I approach STEAM through ‘themes’. For example, I have a Kite STEAM unit that I teach to 7th graders every spring. I approach many subjects using Kites as the subject for example the students have to measure, figure area, weigh and calculate how much lift per square inch is needed. They will decorate one of the kites using primary colors and attempt to achieve optical color mixing when the kite is flying. The students design and build their own cellular kite after learning the Bernoulli principle. I also have them read the history of kites, learn how different cultures used kites. The students really look forward to this unit.

Picture Perfect STEM is a good place to start with connecting picture books to STEM. There are amazing Picture Perfect STEM lesson books available through amazon for k-2 and 3-5. The books are a bit expensive but well worth the price!!

Today I got a call for a position at TechMahindra. The lady asked me to provide my passport number over mail, saying that TechM requires a passport available with the candidate. While I do understand the passport requirement, what I fail to understand is why do they need it over mail? Generally, after all rounds we upload passport in the official portals. Does anybody have the same experience with TechMahindra?
