Why it's a great idea to buy STEAM education toys
It sounds like a brand name, or toys that run on vaporised water, but actually in this case STEAM is an acronym. It stands for "Science, Technology, Engineering and Math". Choosing toys that fit one of these educational categories gives kids the best chance for a bright future, even if they're more attracted to the liberal arts side of the curriculum.
The reason is that these educational categories are the ones that help us understand (and, to some extent, control or influence) the world around us. That doesn't mean other things like language, physical education, or the arts should be ignored. It's best to have a balanced education that covers the full spectrum of what's available.
The great thing about STEAM toys, however, is that they're really interesting and fun. They are toys that have the potential to amaze and entertain.
Learning is actually fun with these toys, and it's not only kids and parents who are discovering this. Schools are catching on as well, and when STEAM education toys are incorporated into a learning plan, kids can be expected to make better progress because these toys engage the imagination and keep kids interested while they learn.
STEAM education toys in Australia - Making a difference
For a country with such a small population, Australia produces an abundance of leaders in innovation. For over a century Australians have been pioneering surgical techniques, developing vaccines to cure diseases, achieving amazing feats of engineering, and much more.
You only need to watch any rerun episode of the ABC Television series The New Inventors to see how wonderfully creative Australians can be. One of the notable aspects of the program is how many inventors attribute their first spark of creativity to something simple in their early learning environment.
STEAM education toys have the potential to be that spark in any child's life. Even if they don't go on to invent something new, they still are getting good experience in learning and applying their knowledge in a practical way.
