Six years ago, Bridgestone introduced the Airless Car Tire concept, which, let’s be honest, hasn’t really moved out of the conceptual testing phases. Maybe we’ll see more development with the Bridgestone Airless Bicycle Tires, which adapt the technology for pedal-powered, two-wheeled steeds.
As with the car version, the tires ditch the air tubes in favor of thermoplastic resin spokes that can continually alter shape as the bike moves. This allows it to support the weight of the rider while absorbing road shocks, all without the risk of a flat. That means, less maintenance and a much lower chance of finding yourself stranded on the side of the road.
he Bridgestone Airless Bicycle Tires use a less-complex series of spokes compared to the car version – a likely result of the fact that it doesn’t need to support loads totaling several thousand pounds. This should make riding an especially more convenient affair, since the lack of air-inflated tires means you can leave the bike pump, spare tube, and a few other dedicated tools at home. It’s also meant to install onto bikes without any special equipment, so you can literally swap in a new airless tire for the one your bike is currently running on.
Unlike the car version, Bridgestone actually has a timetable for the Airless Bicycle Tires’ debut. According to the outfit, it will be publicly available by 2019.
Our annual school holiday workshop was held on 20th-23rd MAC 2017. Approximately 30 students had participate in the 4 days workshop, embracing the 21st century learning creatively. The children were exposed to LEGO Mindstorm EV3 and Scratch with 4 different themes.

This set contains everything you need to start teaching STEM and computer science using the exciting LEGO® MINDSTORMS® concept. It offers full teacher support, including STEM and computing teaching materials, and a comprehensive eLearning program.
The system includes the EV3 Intelligent Brick, a compact and powerful programmable computer that makes it possible to control motors and collect sensor feedback using the intuitive icon-based programming and data logging software that is delivered with the set.
The set is delivered in a sturdy storage bin with a sorting tray, three Servo Motors, five Sensors (Gyro, Ultrasonic, Color and 2x Touch), a EV3 Rechargeable DC Battery, connecting cables, and building instructions.
Includes 541 elements that can be used for teaching science, technology, engineering, math, and computer science.
The LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Core Set comes with a curriculum pack and includes 48 tutorials to help you and your students learn the basics of LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3.
The 48 step-by-step tutorials are designed to help educators and students master basic and advanced programming as well as hardware and data logging functions.
Software and apps
The easy-to-learn, easy-to-use EV3 Software and the EV3 Programming app are optimized for classroom use. Programming is done by dragging and dropping icons into a line to form commands allowing students to uild simple programs, and then easily and intuitively build on their skills until they are developing complex algorithms.
The data logging feature inside the EV3 Software is a powerful science tool for carrying out experiments. It is easy to predict, collect, view, analyze and manipulate data from sensors and see the data in interactive graphs. The software is based on LabVIEW, the industry-leading graphical programming language, and is optimized for classroom usage.
The LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 software lets your students:
Program robots and other creations
Document and track progress using the documentation tool
Create and edit content
Access the Robot Educator tutorials
Log real-time data and calculate data sets (not available on the tablet app)
The software is Windows, Mac, Chromebook and iOS compatible.

What is WeDo?
The WeDo Activity Pack enables educators to provide learning opportunities for developing these broader learning goals:
• Think creatively to make a working model.
• Develop vocabulary and communication skills to explain how the model works .
• Establish links between cause and effect .
• Reflect on how to find answers and imagine new possibilities .
• Brainstorm ideas and endeavor to bring some of them to fruition
• Make fair tests by changing one factor and observing or measuring the effect .
• Make systematic observations and measurements .
• Display and communicate data using tables .
• Follow 2D drawings to build a 3D model .
• Think logically and create a program to produce a specific behavior.
• Write and present creative stories using models for visual and dramatic effects.
STEM education is an integration of science, technology, engineering, and math which emphasized on the application of knowledge to real-life situations. STEM education help in shaping future of our country and the future of our children. Let’s together build our children for the future by infused them with technology-learning environment by engaging them with our fun and enthusiastic teachers using hands-on and minds-on activities.
Let’s explore the world of science and math in attractive and exciting ways with us !!
In line with the vision and transformation of 21st century learning to implement the four C’s vital skills: critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration.
