Introducing the STEM Resource Book Series, a curated journey from Pre-K to Grade 8, designed to instill technological literacy and promote global citizenship. Each grade level corresponds with a stage of the Industrial Revolution, making learning relevant and exciting.
Beginning with foundational concepts in Pre-K and Kindergarten, we transition to mechanics in Grades 1-2, electronics in Grades 3-4, and programming in Grade 5. For Grades 6-8, we explore app development, 3D design, and Arduino projects, aligning with cutting-edge tech trends.
Every project across the series is linked to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, connecting classroom learning to global real-world
issues. The STEM Resource Book Series, therefore, is more than a set of textbooks – it’s a passport to the future of education.

Alignment with the Curriculum
Apply Scientific idea to Design, Test and Refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.
1.4 Innovative Designer
Students use a variety of technologies within a design process to identify and solve problems by creating new, useful or imaginative solutions.
Number & Operation-Fractions Understand decimal notation from fraction, and compare decimal fractions.
Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size. Recognize the comparisons are valid only when the two decimals refer to the same whole.
Record the results of comparisons with the symbol >,=,or<, and justify the conclusion
e.g by using a visual model
- Construct a simple series electrical circuit, identifying and naming its basic parts, including cells,bulbs, switches, and buzzers
- Identify whether or not a lamp will light in a simple series circuit, based on whether or not the lamp is part of a complete loop with a battery
- Recognize that a switvh opens and closes a circuit and associate this whith whether or not a lamp lights in a simple sereis circuit
USe the Engineering Design Process to find a solution to build a circuit that shows how a telegraph works using the given materials
