WHAT ARE STEAM TOYS?
Over the last few years the educational world has seen the advent of a new educational approach: STEAM. This important movement is gaining popularity because it touches on critical factors that help children thrive and succeed in today’s fast-changing world.
STEAM integrates SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, ART and MATH. It helps kids gain an understanding of the links between these subjects, and how they interplay in our everyday lives. STEAM pushes kids to explore science, while applying math, thinking like an engineer, and being creative all at the same time.
Playstix 105 piece Translucent Set is a construction toy that inspires and encourages kids to create the extraordinary.
“I like Playstix because you can make anything you want with it. You can use your imagination. You can make cars, planes, a bike, a house. It’s really fun cause I really like building cars, it has everything I need to build a car. I also like it because it’s very colourful. The colours look like jewels and the pieces are easy to use.”
With Mould & Paint Sea Life kids are pushed to use their artistic spirit and imagination while creating 12 magnets or pins depicting sea animals.
“I love art so I was really excited to play with this art kit. I couldn’t wait to make the mould and pour it into the shapes of the different sea animals. It didn’t take long for it to dry, so I was happy that I could paint the animals soon. Painting is so much fun.
With Wind Power 2.0 kids gets to build wind-powered generators and another six models from a glider to a tricycle.
“I liked Wind Power 2.0 because it was fun to build. I made my own model of a windmill and it was exciting to see it finished and ready to generate power. It was fun to turn it and see the button light up red because that means it’s generating power.
