If you are looking for toys, games, and kits that will ignite your child’s interest in STEM this holiday season, take a look at Project Lead The Way’s 2017 STEM Gift List. I shared their gift guide last year and the response was very positive. I was happy when I received their new gift list; here you will find gifts for all ages and interests including engineering and physics, robotics, coding, electronics, biology and genetics, and more.
Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is the nation’s leading STEM education nonprofit and curriculum provider. PLTW’s mission is to empower and prepare students for the evolving world. They develop lessons and projects that are used by K-12 teachers in the classroom and offer students pathways in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science.
I like PLTW’s gift guide because it was developed by an organization that develops STEM curriculum for students across the US. They understand the types of jobs our children are going to have and the technical skills needed. PLTW teachers from across more than 10,000 schools teamed up to choose these toys as the keys to unlocking a child’s STEM future while they are lost in the world of imagination and play.
