    It seems to me that the only engineering involved in this so called STEM education consist of cutting things out, sticking things on or bolting some prefabricated component on to something else... use cross braces to strengthen a structure, pulleys & leavers to move a large object, differentials, gears... not clue, but experts with a scissors and glue.....

    Apart from the programming bit, I can't help but feel these STEM modules in education are not up to much unless the objective is to produce kids that are really good with the scissors, glue and know how to go on line and buy components they can stick or glue together.

An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
