We can’t say enough about how ASB is an amazing school, and we’re very fortunate to be able to send you to such a place. S.T.E.A.M. Makers events are one reason we feel this way.
The American School of Bombay has a Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (S.T.E.A.M.) event each month. I have to say that I don’t fully understand with we are trying to make S.T.E.M into an all encompassing initiative. The original goal was to promote the sciences…when you add non-science areas it’s called ‘Education’….but I digress.
The first event we went to was in September and it was awesome. The event is located in the secondary campus, down in BKC, and early in the morning really isn’t an issue getting to with traffic.
When we arrived we found probably 10 different stations of toys spread out around the outdoor commons area and inside the library. Stations ranged from foam building blocks, to wooden erector sets, to iPad controlled Robot spheres. It was awesome, and yes I looked up the cost of the Sphero robots and had pretty much decided to buy one. Probably good that it was cheaper when purchased in the states which gave me time to reconsider.
Each time we returned they brought out different games and toys to play with, and every time they kept you three busy for hours. Your mother and I kept ourselves entertained with watching you kids invent new toys and games. Hope you enjoy the photos.
I’m sure this event will be a monthly event throughout our adventure in Mumbai.
