The launch of the new subscription service by Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) comes as good news to a lot of parents with kids wired to science. The company has set out to deliver different types of toys every month to help engage kids in science as well as improve their skills.
What to expect?
Over the years, there has been a misconception that the girl child is not fit to study subjects such as engineering, technology, science and mathematics. STEM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, is a club under Amazon which will ensure kids receive the different toys every moth to boost the learning of science. The toys will be going for $19.99.
The major problem that has been ailing the education sector worldwide is the teaching of irrelevant or inappropriate materials to learners. This needs to stop and it is one of the reasons STEM has seen it proper to pay attention to this problem.
The club is set on producing toys that will cater for instilling a wide range of knowledge in learners. Among things learners are expected to learn are robotics and natural sciences.
STEM has also understood the great need to make the toys age-appropriate and has thus engaged in producing the toys in categories that align to the different ages of learners.
The good part is that learners will be able to obtain relevant skills. That will play a major role towards making them independent and responsible adults in future.
