60 Educational STEM Gifts

From Code-Teaching Toy Robots to Multifunctional Maker Motherboards

— December 23, 2016 — Social Good
As the science and technology sector continues to expand, there is a growing demand for educational STEM gifts. Whether it is a chemistry set that teaches children about the different elements or a device that allows teens to build their own computer, these gifts will help to encourage the next generation of innovators.

For parents who are looking to help their children develop STEM skills at an early age, there are a number of products that make learning a fun activity. For instance, the 'Cubetto' is a toy that uses touch-based learning to teach children as young as three the basics of coding. Similarly, the 'Little Robot Friends' teach programming skills by giving kids an opportunity to control their very own robot.

Of course, STEM gifts are also a popular option for teens and young adults. These gifts can range from coding subscription sets that help teens develop their coding skills over time to brand-new development boards that allow for experimentation and out-of-the-box thinking.
