Help your child gain an advantage in their future careers by developing STEM Skills.
As you know, MOE is putting greater emphasis and encouraging students as young as 4 to start learning about STEM.
You might ask "Why STEM? and what are the benefits?" STEM also known as "Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics" gives students hands on learning with real world applications.
World technology is advancing at an incredible speed, and with a good head start with STEM skills, the child will benefit in life, especially in their future careers.
What is included:
- 5 sets of STEM Toys with instructions (DIY)
- Step by step video by Mandy (Founder)
- Printed Worksheets with answer key (5 Sets)
About the STEM TOYS (Hovering Compass, Binoculars, Fruit Battery, Maglev Pen, Magnetic Car)
Do you know Earth has its own magnetic field? Just like the blue sky, Earth’s magnetic field has always been there. Discovered by accident, lodestones (magnets) were further refined and a compass was born. Hailed as one of the top four inventions of China, let’s discover and see for ourselves how magnets are used in a compass to tell direction, since they always rest in a North-South direction due to Earth’s magnetic field. We will also do two additional experiments commonly seen in Primary 3, 4, 5 and 6 homework, tests and exams: the number of paper clips attracted by a magnet + the ‘floating’ paper clip with this Hovering Compass STEM Toy.
Do you know how to make binoculars in your own home? Now you can! Easy to make for 9-year-olds and older children on their own! Once it’s done, take the binoculars outdoor and explore the world around you! Better than looking at handphone and tablet screens all the time! Tweens will also learn about concave and convex lens at the same time! Concave and convex lens are heavily taught in Secondary School Science.
Do you know an apple does not just keep the doctor away? An apple can be a battery that lights up a lightbulb and shows the time on a clock. In actual fact, not just apples. Lemons, durians, bananas, pumpkins, potatoes, tomatoes are all power banks! Discover with the Fruit Battery STEM toy and see the wonder of chemical potential energy in fruits and vegetables.
Do you know things can float without you touching them? Or you can move something from a distance? Well, magnets have these special abilities! Magnets have been utilised in amazing ways in our world, from the humble door stopper to the high-speed trains of Japan. Tweens can learn about Magnetism, Forces and Electromagnetism through this STEM Toy kit with additional Learnintt worksheets and resources. We will also do an additional experiment commonly seen in Primary School homework, tests and exams: ring magnets through a wooden pole and the structured questions seen in the Science exam.
Do you know we can move a toy car without touching it? Or you can move it from a distance? Well, it’s all due to the wonders of Magnets! Magnets have been utilised in amazing ways in our world, from the humble door stopper to the MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) machines used in hospitals. Tweens can learn that Like Poles of a magnet repel, how Magnetic Forces act from a distance and the two different poles of a magnet. We will also do one question commonly seen in Primary School homework, tests and exams: magnets strapped on a toy car and the structured questions seen in the Science exam.
