STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, four subjects that can help kids establish skills with thousands of incredible applications and assist adults in broadening their educational horizons long after they've left school. Plus, STEM is just plain fun, as evidenced by this STEM Balance Toy that's the perfect gift for special science-minded people of all ages.
The award-winning STEM construction toy, Octacog. helps budding scientists from all walks of life explore the ins and outs of balance. The idea is to use the included collection of metal poles, weighted beads, and other doodads to create a sculpture that remains upright. To do so requires lots of creativity, experimentation, and skill. Think you're the next Einstein? You'll have to best the Octagog first.
Play with this STEM Balance Toy on your own or invite friends over for a balance competition the requires each person to add or move a piece. If the Octagog falls, you're out. If it's safe, you all survive to play another round. Not sure where to start? There are design inspiration cards aplenty plus an instruction book, so everyone knows exactly what they need to do to uncap their imagination and let science rule the day.
This is a great gift for students eager to stretch their STEM horizons or adults who are already in a STEM field and still love to explore their passion while off the clock.
