Are cereals…magnetic? How can I create my own animation? Is it possible to make circuit bugs? How can I make an art robot? Can I solve engineering challenges?
These are some of the questions that will find their answer through the specially designed 7-12 years-old activities in the Science Lab Familior Curiosity Box. STEM activities have been developed in order to encourage experimentation, building, observation, exploration, problem solving, and creation of skills. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math for the future scientists to explore the world.
Each box contains all the materials needed for the activities, books and items that will unlock the secrets of science and will motivate much more gameplay.
Children together with the educator will be able to work with up to five different activity groups, according to their interests and their wishes.
ActivitiesFun with Science
The benefits of science in children development is great. Science involves a lot of communication with other people, develops patience, helps children form “thinking minds”, teaches kids about the world around them and can endow kids with problem solving skills.
Through “Fun with Science” group of activities children will understand the…magnetic elements of food, build an artificial hand, clean dirty water, make circuit bugs and explode sticks using chain reaction. Finally, children will discover bizarre science facts by playing a science true or false game.Developed SkillsSpeech & LanguagePhysicalCognitiveSocialEmotional
Technology has beneficial impact in children’s life. Its creative way enhances learning, improves concentration and multi-tasking ability, develops better cooperation and teamwork and grows confidence and self-esteem. Technology apart from being attractive is an essential tool for children adaptation to the demands of the future.
Through “Thrilled with Technology” group of activities children will develop codes in order to understand the necessity of coding in the future, build an art robot to create art through mechanical motion and create their own animation.Developed SkillsSpeech & LanguagePhysicalCognitiveSocialEmotional
Introducing children to engineering brings a host of benefits. Engineering activities are based on real-world technologies and problems, so they help children see how disciplines like math and science are relevant to their lives. Hands-on, project-based learning is the essence of engineering making knowledge extremely attractive and fun.
Through “Thrilled with Engineering” group of activities children will try to solve engineering challenges, make a geodesic dome and sphere with straws and build a rocket car using balloon air force.Developed SkillsSpeech & LanguagePhysicalCognitiveSocialEmotional
The importance of math in children cognitive development is essential. Math teaches logic and order. The discipline of mind that children develop through math can carry over into everyday life as it is next to impossible to live an independent life without basic math skills. Math can also provide a vehicle through which critical-thinking skills are put into practice and refined.
Through “Excited with Math” group of activities children will build a math code, make “flexible” polygons, compose Lego math patterns and create figures with tangrams.Developed SkillsSpeech & LanguagePhysicalCognitiveSocialEmotional
Physical Science is a topic that covers a variety of subdivided themes like physics, space science, chemistry, earth science engineering, etc. The history of science is full of fun and interesting science facts. These facts will become a nice opportunity for children to learn about peculiar animals, interesting scientists, human body facts, the amazing world of plans and insects, etc. All those fascinating information have been carefully brought together to a fun true or false game for children to play and learn.Developed SkillsSpeech & LanguagePhysicalCognitiveSocialEmotional
