The Importance of STEM

Continuing with STEM or STEAM learning at home provides a wealth of benefits for kids, especially in elementary grades. A recent study shows the correlation of STEM education, specifically computer science, and improved students’ attitudes and academic achievement. Without STEM, children may regress or lose out on this valuable growth potential.

Child Wellbeing

STEAM learning is so much more than writing code and sitting in front of a screen all day. Sphero robots and STEAM Kits are designed to promote physical activity, mental stimulation, creativity, and inspire kids’ imaginations, which contributes to a better, overall well-being.

Real-World Problem Solving

STEM skills are more important now than ever, enhancing a kid’s capacity to innovate and find solutions using technology and math.
