It’s summer and I’m tired of hearing the kids say “I’m bored” even though they have only been out of school for a few weeks. I am trying to be more creative finding things for them to do but sometimes that can be a challenge. After going thru numerous local programs, trips to the pool, movies, etc., I am about out of ideas. I want to keep them occupied but at the same time keep learning but not make it feel like they are learning. You know – Fun Learning such as a STEM product. Best Buy recently sent me a STEM toy and it has saved the day as the kids have been playing with it non-stop.
Meet SPRK+ – A Fun STEM Educational Toy and available at Best Buy. This toy can navigate mazes, swim across water, be a magic 8 ball, and paint pictures. It is perfect to play in the house, on the go, or infuse classroom-type learning outside of the classroom. It is designed to inspire curiosity, creativity, and invention through connected play and coding, SPRK+ is far more than just a robot. Powered by the Lightning Lab app, you can easily learn programming, complete hands-on activities, and share your creations with the community.
So you may be wondering what STEM is and how it is beneficial for kids. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. With all of those kids can learn so much more and develop more skills. Products that are made for STEM can help them adapt to things in life as they get older that will help them in the long run. And when they learn it when they are younger it sticks in their brain and becomes adaptive.
With the Sphero SPRK+ robot kit, kids can learn to code when they play with it by using the Lightning Lab app. It introduces them to programming, robotics and other STEM principles. They can even teach the robot to navigate a maze, swim or paint, and collaborate with others around the world to share knowledge. With technology being more involved in our daily lives this is important for kids to learn. So not only are they having fun but also learning at the same time and that is a win-win situation.
