Top Picks for STEM Toys


You have probably heard the word “STEM” used frequently at your child’s school or while drinking coffee with your friends during a playdate.  So…what is STEM?  STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education.  STEM integrates the four disciplines into a cohesive learning model that provides hands-on and relevant learning experiences for students.  STEM education engages students and equips them with critical thinking and problem solving skills.  One way to start developing your child’s STEM skills at any age is through play.

These are my top picks for STEM education toys that I have found, thus far… Please help Letters In The Sand by purchasing through the links below (or through the Letters In The Sand Amazon Store) if you decide to buy any items.  Thank you for your support.
