There are many ways to show your kids the joys of science, from walks in the woods to astronauts getting slimed in space. Fortunately, you don't need to buy a rocket ship to show your family why science is awesome. The STEM Starter Bundle gives you two kits perfect for showing your little ones the cool side of STEM.
The STEM Starter Bundle: Robotic & Curiosity Kits is on sale for $79.99 (reg. $119), a discount of 33%.
These educational toys from Twin Science have the awards to back them up, winning at the 2020 Bett Awards and getting the silver at the 2020 Play for Change Awards. Both are honors from science educators and tech luminaries looking to encourage kids to get into science.
First, for ages 5-8, there's the Robotic Kit. Compatible with the Lego collection you already have, this kit illustrates how to build robots, step by step, and use them to create new designs and patterns for art projects. They're easy to build and designed to be play-safe, so you can work with them to assemble their bots, or let them explore on their own. Along the way, kids will learn the basics of robotics, logic, and the artistic side of mathematics.
Then, for ages 7-10, the Curiosity Kit offers 15 different DIY projects. Kids can build a hat that lights up on command, a Morse code signaling device, a lamp that lights up with applause, a smart pet feeder, and much more. There's no welding required, and kids will discover how circuits work and be introduced to logical approaches to design and construction. And since it too is Lego-compatible, as everyone gets comfortable with the sensors and designs, they can begin building their own creations, or add to what they've already put together.
Usually these kits would cost $119 as a bundle. Yet right now, you can get both the Robotic Kit and Curiosity Kit for $79.99, which is 33% off.
