Gen Alphas — those little gaffers that were born this century — have not known a life without technology. Their nurseries were filled with gadgets and gizmos that helped them sleep … or let mom know when they were awake. Smart appliances rule their houses, and screens and devices can be found in every nook and cranny. Yet it seems that, when it comes to math and science, kids are still falling behind. So here are a couple of fantastic kits that could amp your tykes’ interest in learning while still having fun.
In 2018 the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development tested 15-year-old students in various educational subjects. Specifically, the teens placed 11th and 30th out of 79 countries, respectively, in science and math, below the global average.
In a world that is evermore run by technology, it is in our interest, as parents, to encourage our children to become more knowledgeable about these subjects and gain this knowledge in our children’s interest. Robotics, automation, artificial intelligence and environmental sustainability are already part of our future and will only root themselves further as the years progress.
As they say, it’s never too early to start teaching your kids. The key, of course, is to pique their interest while maintaining the fun quotient. The pre-teen set will love the creations they can build, using both their imagination and the tools contained in these kits by Twin Science. The Curiosity Kit features many materials to help bring the projects to life using robotic technologies. In contrast, the Coding Kit develops their coding skills (never a bad ability to have in this day and age). They are both designed to increase your child’s fine motor skills, nurture creativity and imagination, and build self-esteem and confidence … all without even realizing it!
By combining science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) into an enjoyable activity, Twin Science has successfully developed toys that will provide children with valuable skills to enhance their overall development and prepare them for a better tomorrow. As a result, it was recognized by the World Economic Forum and has been the recipient of many awards, including the Smart Toy AI Award, Winner of the Bett Awards 2020 and Silver Winner of Play for Change Awards 2020.
