Why Do Kids Need STEM?

  • Introducing engineering concepts into K-12 education has the potential to improve student learning and achievement in science and math according to a report from the National Academy of Engineering and the National Research Council
  • The U.S. Department of Labor has predicted that jobs requiring science, engineering, and technical training will increase 34% between 2008 and 2018
  • Boston Museum of Science notes that children participating in engineering projects learn math and science concepts by illustrating relevant applications

STEM-Themed Kits

 

Kidnetics

Kidnetics is design, engineering, and play that moves beyond just having fun. This innovative theme kit incorporates Moov education and Quadro construction building systems to promote engineering principals, design concepts, and technical thinking skills using simple machines. Create unique and inventive cars, scooters, and wheeled contraptions. Use simple step-by-step instructional manuals for a gratifying and exciting learning experience.

Science FX

Explore mathematic, engineering, and scientific concepts through fun and hands-on learning stations. Utilize the Gear Wall to investigate simple machines and energy transformation. While the Marble Wall and Spinning Top Arena allow for the observation of basic physics principles like conservation of energy and fundamental forces. Each unique and engaging station encourages group interaction while extraordinary signage and displays explain the scientific concepts at work.

Rent-A-Theme Entertainment offers a selection of theme kits designed to emphasize STEM concepts through fun, grade-appropriate play. Rent-A-Theme is a member of the STEM Education Coalitionwhose mission is to promote and improve STEM education across the country.
