      What Does STEAM Stand for?

      STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. It is an innovative teaching approach that seeks to blend together all five of these core disciplines to create a holistic educational experience. 

      By comprehensively integrating the different areas of study and providing interactive learning experiences through play, STEAM education enables learners to develop a multifaceted understanding of any subject matter. 

      STEAM toys can promote out-of-the-box thinking and creativity in kids, helping them to develop critical life skills while having fun!

      What Are STEM Toys?

      STEM toys have become increasingly popular as a fun way to foster critical thinking skills and an understanding of crucial learning areas that are often overlooked as boring or too difficult.

      You may have also heard of STEAM toys, which are much the same with the addition of arts-based games designed to foster creativity. 

      STEM toys range from basic building blocks to solar-powered robots — they may take the form of games, experiments, projects or activities, all of which require problem-solving. With interactive learning experiences, kids can engage their curiosity while developing vital life skills related to critical thinking and creativity. 

      Ultimately, playing with STEM toys is an effective method of sparking interest in STEM fields — making them the perfect choice for inquisitive minds searching for opportunities for learning and fun!
