STEM Toys Gift Guide
If you have a child interested in STEM you definitively need this awesome shortlist. Now, with all the virtual learning and homeschooling newbies out there, I am pretty sure this STEM Toys Gift Guide will be a phenomenal handy list to upgrade those at home curriculums! Take a look at the awesome toys and games that we discovered at the Sweet Suite Toy Fair:
Have fun learning the basics of electronics and alternative energy. It all lights up right in front of you. Unless you made a mistake :-). This easy hand-on set teaches the basics of circuits. It’s electrifying and makes for learning in a snap! We love how you go beyond making a switch work. It shows propellers moving and more. Great for those up to 14 years old. Explore clean energy concepts, such as electric cars, windmills, and hand-generated power. Perfect for environmentalists and future engineers!
Can you say coding without stress or screen? Definitely a great idea for a beginner level. That said, I love that those more experienced can set more complex tasks. So, the robot grows with your learning skill set. KC3 stands for Keypad Coding Robot. It comes as a kit. And, you built it yourself. regarding the programming, it is all about coding by intuition, and it is done by pressing buttons. I believe there are two robot models to pick from. The robots are able to move in 8 different directions.
AM/FM Radio Kit
Now this one is for serious learning. It comes with a manual. The manual translates into 9 lessons. The lessons cover Audio Amplifier, AM Detector, AM IF, AM Amplifier, AM Mixer & Oscillator, FM Detector, 1st FM IF, 2nd FM IF, and FM RF Stages. The kit has a transistor module. It allows you to switch between the modern integrated circuit (IC) technology and the original transistor technology. It also includes a radio mounting stand. Definitively not a quick one, but for sure a very interesting project to have.
The award-winning WowWee robot MiP is a test of fine motor skills! Now, it is equipped with GestureSense™ technology. So, we are talking about any hand motion can control MiP™. Alternatively, you can load up the free MiP App on an iOS or Android smart device.
I still haven’t played this board game. But, I went over it with its game creators during the Sweet Suite Toy Fair and was totally blown away. It is a great game to inspire kids (of all ages) to look to the skies. to dream with the possibility of exploring them and conquering them. Because, this is a strategy game. So there is plenty at work here to develop skills, thought processes, and foster the love for outer space. I simply had to include it in a STEM round xx. Apollo will bring you straight to the moon and back, in this unique and cooperative strategy game created in partnership with NASA This asymmetrical game is available now at Target!
