The great inventor and scientist Benjamin Franklin said, “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” Centuries later, science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) gifts for the holiday may actively engage your loved one of any age.
Exposure to STEM is especially important for young ones as we prepare for our future, which will depend on more cutting-edge industries. Our world's security, healthcare and energy needs are a changing. The number of devices (smart phone, tablet, etc.) will soon outnumber the people on our planet Earth.
I'm pleased to share fantastic options for your holiday gift list thanks to Project Lead The Way (PLTW). They are a non-profit organization that provides a transformative learning experience for K-12 students and teachers.
You may access their 2015 Super STEM Gifts. "It's a list of the best toys, games and activities that are both fun and educational and will inspire young people’s interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)."
PLTW’s annual Super STEM Gifts leverage the diverse perspective of PLTW team members and teachers. They reinforce problem-solving and critical-thinking skills that are vital in today’s emerging fields. It's refreshing to see their range of prices.
I'm delighted to see how STEM fascinates my boys (two and five). Their holiday gift wish list is full of Lego toys, robots and museum gift passes. It is a joy to watch them creatively explore.
We can collaborate to help build a future of growth based on STEM innovation.
