Consequential STEAM

A new teaching strategy for sciences and tech is coincidental

Implications - One barrier to learning the STEAM practices is the lack of tangible outcome or incentive. Alleviating this, educational toys that treat the learning process as a means to a tangible end, such as building a robot or conducting an experiment, both attach a tangible prize and boost playtime engagement. This shows a less literal approach to gamification that focuses on personal satisfaction.
