Educators today agree that the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) disciplines are vital in preparing children for the high-tech careers of tomorrow. To get children interested in STEM, you can’t just talk to them about science and engineering, you also have to capture their imagination through engaging play. I have hand picked the best, most creative gadgets on the market after rigorous testing with my own nieces and nephew. It is especially gratifying to see them happily turn off the TV and put down their tablets to play with these toys and (shhhh!) learn some STEM along the way.
