Remember the Chemistry Set!
What’s on your holiday wishlist this year? A robotics kit or kitchen chemistry set from Thames and Kosmos? Maybe you’re hoping for a high-tech construction set by Roominate. Or what about an interactive globe from National Geographic? If so, you’re not alone! The National Math & Science Initiative encourages caregivers to look for STEM toys this holiday season:
Forget computer games, superheroes or sci-fi action figures. The hot toys for kids this holiday season are educational… A national push is underway to encourage more students – especially underrepresented minorities and girls – to engage in STEM studies and careers. Toy manufacturers are seizing on the opportunity to inspire interest in math and science with an array of toys, games and kits for children of all ages. Most of these toys are available online, and few exceed $50.
You can check out the NMSI’s toy guide here! STEM toys are a great idea for the special kids in your life… or for the curious kid inside each of us.
