Best STEM Kits for Kids
Curriculums which include STEM and STEAM education are focused on hands-on activities which always include important lessons in critical thinking, problem solving, fine motor skills and an almost scientific way of thinking about real life problems which are faced by the society. Starting kids young with this approach to learning has a profound impact on their overall cognitive development. It is considered a 360 degree approach to immersive learning and growth of your child. Research suggests that kids in preschool and middle school who are already used to this approach of learning, have a significant advantage in academic success as compared to their counterparts.
How can you foster a love for STEM in your child?Engaging children during plat-time with hands-on creative activities or toys inspires their inquisitive minds. Through a combination of real experiences, passionate role models and hands-on activities, parents can nurture a child’s love for STEM. Project based learning provides a strong sense of accomplishment which instills the values of resilience and adaptability through trial and error and imaginative play. Banyan Tree Kidz’s STEM kits equip children with skills of problem-solving and cognitive development in early years. Complex subjects such as climate change, community, and diversity are packaged and taught using engaging storybooks and book inspired STEM learning kits. This makes learning seriously an immersive experience.
The best STEM education should be interdisciplinary. Some of the best STEM activities are found through creativity, inquiry, imagination and excitement. A well-rounded education is fertile ground for Eureka Moments!
Create an environment for learning The earlier a child is introduced to STEM learning and education, the easier it is to build a solid foundation on subjects of science, technology, engineering and math. Children are born curious and are filled with excitement and imagination. Adults can harness upon this natural inquisitiveness and inspire a love for creation and innovation. Young children learn by example. Read and surround your house with meaningful and enriching books, have conversations about the science and involve them as you are fixing a broken lamp or building new furniture in your house.
Explore STEM activities as a Family STEM is all around us! Expose your child to as many fun hands-on activities as possible. Visit science exhibitions, attend fairs and demonstrations, take a trip to the local museums, point-out historical structures or monuments in the city, conduct fun experiments at home and do not be afraid of getting messy. Let your child tinker with household items that are broken or need fixing (with proper guidance and supervision). Classic science experiments like the elephant toothpaste experiment, easy melting snow experiments, playing with slime are just some examples of fun DIY activities, which are a guaranteed success with little ones. Use positive reinforcement while doing these STEM activities as a family. This boosts confidence and enhances their decision-making skills at a later stage of their lives. Reduce Screen time Set aside timings for your child’s Ipad or television use. In today’s highly digitalized world, it is challenging to get children off the screen as we struggle with ways to entertain them. Emphasize the excitement and fun of hands-on activities. Always keep crafts and art supplies, books, and educational toys within easy reach.
