STEM Toys: 8 Toys To Make Your Kids Smarter

And they're finding that there's a lot of fun to be had in teaching kids that science and math are more than just memorizing tables and formulas. The hiccup is, if you're looking for a STEM toy for your son or daughter, it can be overwhelming. One option is Amazon's just-announced subscription program called STEM Club, which delivers hand-picked, age-appropriate toys that encourage kids to learn as they play. At just under $20 per month, it guarantees a steady flow of items, but early customer reviews have been mixed.

If you're more of a take-charge parent who would rather pick and choose STEM toys yourself, we've got a few suggestions that will not only engage your kids, but could keep you up late playing with the toys yourself.

Cirkits: a sewable electronics kit for kids! by Cirkits Team

Some bumps and challenges will inevitably occur and we have designed a number of contingency plans should we run into any roadblocks with our suppliers or producers. Our goal with Cirkits is to get as many children as possible exposed to sewable electronics and we see Cirkits as a start to achieving this goal. We are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality product we can make, but also recognize that Cirkits will possess a level of handmadeness unlike a commercially produced product you might purchase in a store.

As full time students and professors we are dedicated to making this project a success, but recognize that it may at times delay our ability to respond to your questions or concerns.
