Experts agree that a strong understanding of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) is critical for success in the 21st century. Turner Toys & Hobbies has been selling educational toys since 1998 and most of what we carry can be classified as STEM.
What's STEM? It's not just electronics and computers. It's about critical thinking, perseverence, problem-solving. A lot of folks think it should be STEAM - adding the arts recognizes that role that they play in problem-solving, creativity and "thinking outside the box."
Engineering, science and architecture are all fields that require a STEM/STEAM education. So look for toys that will inspire your child to explore these fields.
