Our 2014 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Holiday Gift Guide12:29 AM
Kids love toys and games. But why not turn their love for fun into something that will stay with them forever -- and possibly follow them into a STEM career that is in high-demand and pays well, too? We found lots of cute and entertaining items that kids will love and that can teach them something important. Check out our top picks for bright young learners this year:
1. GeoSafari Jr. My First Microscope
Little nature explorers will love this easy-to-use and assembled first microscope. It's a simple product that uses no batteries or lights, but lets kids see things in the viewing lenses up to 8x their size! Check out bugs, leaves, or household finds; children can safely use this bold-colored, sturdy tool to build an interest in science and learn proper use of a real working microscope! (Available at Educational Insights for $21.99)
It helped them with their hand-eye coordination and learning to recognize patterns (both which are essential for a future in STEM careers!) You can learn more about these affordable kits at the PomTree official website or buy them here!
