Let's get coding! Have fun and learn to code with a racing game.
We appreciate the difficulties parents and students are facing as schools are closed and many parents are working from home due to COVID-19.
To help with this, we are going to be releasing weekly STEMbased activities that you can do at home with your children. Activities will encompass all aspects of STEM, including coding, environmental sustainability, robotics and opportunities to teach our children all about CGI!
Create a design for a robot and then pretend to be one.
Thanks for downloading our robots packet. Here's a random robot fact for you: Did you know that the word robot comes from a Czech word "robota" which means drudgery?
Learn a "bit" about binary through creative activities in 1s and 0s.
Thanks for downloading the Binary packet.
Did you know that the binary code all computers use is made up of a series 0s and 1s? Each 0 or 1 is called a bit, and 8 bits make up a byte. So when you're watching a 15-second TikTok video (72 megabytes), you're actually looking at over 600 million bits!
Use technology to help keep in touch with the people you care about.
Thanks for downloading our Communicating packet. Here's a random STEM fact about communication: there are roughly 6,500 spoken languages in the world today.
Create your own vision board to get started on your career path.
Thanks for visiting. Glad you're eager to do our careers packet. Here's a fun fact:
According to some experts, 85% of the jobs that will exist in 2030 haven't been invented yet!
Complete the art of consulting activity to sharpen your business skills.
Thanks for coming. Consultants provide expert advice professionally. A consultant is a leader, a problem solver, an expert and a change agent. A consultant is not a yes person, an order taker or a status quo enforce. Generally they are not the ultimate decision maker.
Build your own city! Take it outdoors or get creative inside.
Thank you for downloading the Building packet. Did you know that the tallest building in the world is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. It's 2,717 ft tall: twice the height of France's Eiffel Tower.
Tell a story with data and use to it help make decisions.
Thank you for downloading the Data packet. Did you know that data, the collection of factual information, is actually plural? The singular form of data is datum (but most people and businesses today use data as a singular noun).
Use data and technology to design your own smart future city.
Thanks for downloading the Smart Cities packet. But what exactly is a Smart City? Basically, a “Smart City” is a city or community that uses technology to improve quality of life. Being a “Smart City” can also improve the way that the government works for the people who live inside of it In Smart Cities, data and technology can help answer questions like – “where is the best place to build a building for energy efficiency?” “what are the best places for the city bus to stop?” and “when should street lights turn on?”
Take a nature scavenger hunt and appreciate the beauty of the world.
Thanks for downloading the Nature packet.
Some of the most significant environmental issues that we face today include pollution, climate change and natural resources running low. We need YOU to help educate people on the steps they can take to help save the environment, design practical solutions and become experts in your local environments.

Embrace activities that reduce, reuse, recycle, repurpose and repair.
Thanks for downloading the Recycling packet.
Did you know that "repurpose" and "repair" were added to the "reduce, reuse and recycle". By repurposing and repairing items we prevent new raw materials from needed to be used, keep existing items in use, and keep them out of landfills.
Find out ways to help protect environment against climate change.
Thanks for downloading the Climate Change packet.
Climate change does not equal weather! It's a common misconception but there is a difference. Changes in our environment's average temperature, rainfall, etc. in a certain area (region) is what scientists call climate change.
