These days, STEM learning is taking the world by storm! For those of you who haven’t heard of this before, STEM stands for SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING and MATHEMATICS. More recently STEM learning has developed into STEAM learning with the addition of ART.
STEAM learning is modern, practical way of teaching children and teenagers important skills through real-life projects rather than through textbook learning alone. In schools and learning centers, learners are encouraged to follow a guided “problem-solving” cycle in order to reach the outcome that they are looking for. This not only teaches them practical skills in each of the above-mentioned learning areas, but it also encourages learners to think critically and test out new ideas.
Here are some GREAT STEAM learning kits that we recommend parents consider purchasing for this kids:
