The Best STEM Gift Guide for Kids!

The holidays are approaching, and we are here to help with your shopping needs! Read below for our tips and a free gift guide filled with quality educational gifts for the kids in your life.

What is a STEM gift?

The market is now flooded with toys and games labeled “STEM” but that doesn’t mean that it really qualifies as a quality educational toy. To gauge whether an item is worthy of the STEM education title, we recommend identifying if it meets at least one of the following standards:

It increases knowledge in a STEM field

It increases STEM skills like critical thinking, problem-solving, or scientific inquiry.

It inspires or demonstrates the actions of a STEM career. Think “snazzy lab coat” or a book about STEM careers or famous scientists.

If the item you are eyeing satisfies one of the standards above, you can feel confident that you are contributing in some way to the scientific, engineering, or technical prowess of the recipient!
