In this SmartBrief article, Helen Schwartz, from the New England Jewish Academy in CT shares her experience of combining STEM learning with lessons about Jewish holidays.
Using the Limudei Code-Esh STEAM program and curriculum, Helen is able to integrate coding and computational thinking with six Jewish holidays: Sukkot, Chanukkah, Tu B’shevat, Purim, Pesach, and Yom Ha’atzmaut.
Helen says, “But that’s learning, too. It’s hands-on, and just as there’s more than one way to design a platform for shaking a lulav, there’s more than one way to learn with a robot.”
