As a means of helping children to learn about the sciences, Learning Resources put together an educational toy set that encourages an exploration of the senses.

The hands-on STEM playset for kids ages three and up features Sensory Tubes with kids, a buzzer that can be used to record responses, a kaleidoscope, a large magnifying glass, tactile chips, taste cards and an activity guide.

Through tactile, auditory and visual explorations, kids will learn to sharpen their observation skills, make predictions, process sensory information and then use descriptive language to describe their experiences. Beyond what's included in the STEM toy set, kids can use what they learn to engage with the world around them in a meaningful way.
