Things we Love Winter 2020
STEM Learning’s website is packed with resources for STEM subjects to support home learning for primary and secondary school-aged children, and all for free! These curriculum-linked resources are based on the UK national curriculum. Still, there is also a section for hands-on activities to try at home where everyone can join in. The site notes that the activities are supposed to be done with adult assistance.
2. A Petite Story
This local business is a one-stop-shop for mother and baby accessories, from bodysuits to bows and breastfeeding covers. But what especially caught our attention were its wonderfully crafted, reversible cloth face-masks. Available in child, teen, and adult sizes and in a variety of patterns, there’s sure to be something you’ll like. Our editor was thrilled to find one with both her loves: pink and florals! Child and teen-sized masks respectively cost QR 50 and QR 55 per piece, whereas adult ones go for QR 60. Pick-up is free, but home deliveries cost QR 25 within Doha and QR 35 outside. International shipping is also available.
This site houses hundreds of various practice aptitude tests to help you nail a job interview at any industry. Employers can also benefit from its interpretation guides for such tests to help them decide whether candidates are right for the jobs on offer. The site also has a section to help users prepare for interviews at specific big-name companies. Some of the tests are available for free, and you can get a free trial membership of the site. But if you really want to get stuck in, you can purchase a year’s access to every test available with worked answers for GBP 39.99 (around QAR 200). You can also buy subject-specific bundles for GBP 14.99 (around QAR 75).
