What are STEM Toys? Are they worth the hype?

STEM toys have been in the news consistently over nearly 2 decades. Today the market is flooded with numerous options and parents are often confused about what to choose. What are STEM toys? Do you need to invest in them to secure your child's future?

Let's find out!

STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. All STEM toys are based on these 4 subjects and reinforce and develop skills required by these disciplines. STEM toys are a great way to break the monotony surrounding the subject and introduce scientific concepts to a child in a fun and memorable way.

STEM toys are also known to enable children see "connections" between their play components, improving their understanding and individual creativity. Motor skills develop too as children use their hands to assemble parts. If children work together on a STEM toy, teamwork and coordination are skills that are simultaneously developed.

Overall, STEM toys have great potential to develop skills that your child may use in the professional world later on. It is wrong to assume that only children with an inclination towards science can benefit from these toys. Every child can reap the benefits of these toys provided they are guided the right way by a parent/teacher.
