STEM TOYS
Giving children a head start on tomorrow!

STEM is an acronym for SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, and MATH. The focus of STEM education is teaching not only the skills, but how the various skills interact with one another and relate to the world. It is said that children will need to develop STEM skills to adapt in today's world.

STEM toys are simply toys that stimulate one, or many of the STEM skills in children. They are the type of educational toys Live And Learn has been focusing on since we were established in 1988. In fact, our tag line since 1988 has been Toys That Give Children A Head Start On Tomorrow!

Getting in line with the modern trend, we created this STEM category to help you easily find toys, puzzles and games that fall under the blanket of STEM Toys.

The items we selected for this category are products we think have the appropriate skill fostering properties embraced by the STEM educational movement. At first glance certain items may not seem to fit in the category, but STEM is not about being apparent and in your face, it is about the skills that can be derived from certain types of play.

For instance, block play may not seem like a STEM toy, but after five years of studying children at play, Jeffrey Trawick-Smith, an education professor at Eastern Connecticut State University, has been quoted as saying the highest-scoring toy, for boys and girls, has been a basic set of hard wood blocks, and that blocks promote a terrific amount of problem solving…and also mathematical thinking. So, when you think STEM, think outside the box, and what the item can teach the user.

Included in our mix are items geared towards all ages, from the youngest learner to teens to even adults!
