STEM - Learning through play

STEM toys are becoming more and more popular for kids of all ages as studies show the many benefits.

In a child’s mind, the natural world contains endless mysteries. Science-based STEM toys (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) encourage curiosity and understanding. When the amazing is explainable, children learn that they can find answers to what had seemed mysterious. Challenging young minds to find answers to questions is fundamental to STEM development. Whether based in earth science or looking out into the vast reaches of outer space, scientific learning starts early and lasts a lifetime.

STEM toys help kids associate science with fun, freedom and discovery. Whether it’s building complex, intricate structures or engineering a gadget from the ground up, STEM-focused play helps children connect learning and problem-solving with enjoyment and pride, whilst developing a child’s independence and ability to overcome challenges.

There are now a huge range of science toys, opening young minds to new scientific principles in chemistry, biology, physics, astronomy and more, allowing them to conduct fun, educational scientific experiments while they play.

Good quality STEM toys require kids to think, interact with and manipulate concepts and ideas, setting them up for a lifetime of interest in science, engineering, maths and technology.
