We often hear the acronym SEEM refer to areas in which we need to develop interest of the youth. But, what exactly is STEM? STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. These fields are significant if the next generation is to advance. And the best way to have new people enter these fields is by kindling the interest in children. That interest can occur in the very young children or in teenagers. But unless it occurs in a significant number of those who will become the next adults the world will regress.
Things shown below span a multitude of age groups. It is important that the items chosen for a child be age appropriate. Even if the item does not pose a danger, if it is too advanced it will discourage rather than encourage. And, if something is too basic it will become boring and discarded. A toy is only able to promote learning if it is used.
One good thing to keep in mind is that the toy should be fun, and that should be the focus for the child. Saying this is educational might be all that is needed to turn the child off and close the mind to accepting the toy.
STEM toys make excellent gift ideas for any gift giving occasion.
