Babipur STEMspiration – World Wide Web
This fortnight we asked you to explore the theme the World Wide Web in light of the fact it celebrated it’s 30th Birthday last week! We have been really enjoying seeing how creative you’ve been getting; keep those entries coming! You can find the original challenge post >here<
Our children asked us what the point of the world wide web was. The web was created in 1989 to help the Scientists at CERN share information. It was a further two years before it became publicly available. The way we share information nowadays, compared to 30 years ago, is incredible. It really couldn’t be easier.
Taking photos and sharing photos is something most of us do on a daily basis. Lots of different terms can be used but we went with ‘cloud’ for an easy visual. We can store pictures in the cloud to keep them safe in one handy place, instead of them being littered everywhere and forgotten or deleted. There are many other benefits of cloud storage too. We can send pictures to our cloud account that can then be accessed by multiple devices and even shared with others so family and friends can access them too, from anywhere in the world.
We recently had some photos printed and used these along with wooden pieces from the Grimms 12 Piece Natural Tunnel and Bridges to make a cloud shape. Our little ones understood this straight away and then sat and discussed what else we could send and store online; books, files, letters, music, films, games etc.
How do you enter?
All you have to do is post a picture or video on your public Instagram account or in the Babipur Hangout Group on Facebook showing your little ones making learning fun with the World Wide Web as the theme. Use the tag #babipurSTEM so we can find your entries and on Instagram don’t forget to tag @babipur too!
Multiple entries are always encouraged and we’ll post some STEMspiration for you over the fortnight. The challenge will run for another week and entries will count up to Wednesday 27th March 2019 at 11am. Both the winner and the next challenge will be announced shortly after.
What’s the prize?
This fortnight we’ve got a trio of lovely prizes for you. The Grapat 3 Wooden Natural Nins to encourage open ended play. A Nin can be anything from a scientist to a ballerina or even a Babipur Team member working hard to get your orders out quickly! The PlanToys My First Phone is a great technology themed toy so whilst you’re having a look at our latest Instagram post for inspiration, your child can join in and copy you. We’re also going to add the Okonorm Coloured Chalks as they’re such a fab addition to your little one’s arts and craft box.
