Engineering kit for kids

We’ve built Banyan Tree Kidz with a belief that children are our future and equipping them with the ability to think is our upmost responsibility. This ability to think sparks confidence to create big ideas and become creators in the true sense. There is no right or wrong way to learn or create. We just want to bring out their natural imagination and ingenuity.

STEM and Engineering

For pre-schoolers, engineering is all about play. While designing an engineering kit for kids, it should be all about exploring, experimenting, building and discovering. How to balance structures, build simple and singular structures, what is the best way to build a tower or a bridge, these are just some concepts which get children thinking and creating.

The ‘E’ in STEM is a building block to become great scientists, mathematicians, and artists

Engineering makes the backbone of STEM education and is used in all aspects of building, designing, and testing.
Engineering is introduced to children infrequently from K-12 despite growing evidence that knowledge and education of engineering leads to improved learning in science and mathematics.
Whether it is their favourite character building a house, designing a windmill, or travelling in spaceships, topics of engineering can be introduced to little minds at an early age.
Young STEM tots often find engineering problems in books that they read. Our engineering kits for kids are inspired by children’s storybooks to introduce the concept of engineering in the most fun and engaging way.

Engineering and Literacy

Literacy in books provides a rich environment for problem solving. The focus is on key steps in the engineering design process: recognizing and framing problems, planning big ideas, testing and optimizing solutions after several trial and error processes. The subject of engineering is considered as the responsibility of educators in college or universities. This misconception has caused very little integration of engineering in elementary, middle school and high school. Engineering is not primarily used by workers in the field of construction or architecture. Engineering concepts are also used to develop knowledge in life science, health science, space and earth science.
