STEM / STEAM & Science Kits
S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education is about fostering creativity, curiosity and a passion for problem-solving. It teaches problem-solving and critical thinking skills, which we consider to be essential life skills. Once kids grasp core concepts, they can use their own creativity and curiosity to research, design, test and improve viable solutions to real-world challenges and problems.
In recent times, S.T.E.M was expanded to include the Arts - S.T.E.A.M. It was recognised that to be successful in technical fields, individuals must also be creative and use critical thinking skills. These skills were considered to be best developed through exposure to the arts. It argues for arts education to exists in conjunction with or completely blend with STEM studies, as a way to encourage creativity and design. For some, such inclusion could drive more engagement and interest in STEM.
An underlining aspect to both S.T.E.M and S.T.E.A.M. is logic, which is what brain teaser games are great for. Brainteaser games are sometimes known as logic games, and currently, there are many wonderful and fun logic games designed for single and multiple players. For young children, this is a good place to start their S.T.E.A.M. journey. For older children and adults, they are a fun way to keep the brain sharp! Check out our large range of Brain Teaser Games.
