Using E-Portfolios to Showcase Your Work, Experience and Skills

Move aside Barbie, there’s a new toy in town!

It’s never too early for holiday shopping and we have the perfect gift this year.  Roominate is a new take on the dollhouse if the dollhouse was on steroids.

Roominate allows you to:

  • build and design your structures
  • wire electricity through your creation
  • decorate your masterpiece
  • practice your STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) skills

Geared towards children ages 6-10, Roominate is available for purchase through the website.

MTA Joins the Truck Trend

On a recent outing in NYC I happened upon this MTA truck where straphangers can buy MetroCards rather than having to descend into the bowels of NYC for the MetroCard vending machines.

While this mobile outreach is well intended, there appears to be only 1 of these trucks in all of NYC (population 8 million, area 303 square miles).  You’re more likely to see a shooting star.  If you happen to stumble upon this truck, buy your cards and don’t expect the truck to be there again.
