Whart is STEM?

STEM is short for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Together, these subjects form the backbone of today’s technological society, and are shaping our rapidly evolving future.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) learning puts an emphasis on preparing future generations to be successful in their careers. The skills gained from Smartivity STEM Educational Construction Toys extend beyond those needed to be successful in STEM fields, preparing children with varied interests who move into any industry to have valuable skill sets that allow them to be successful.

Skills Derived from Smartivity STEM Educational Construction Toys 

STEM Educational Construction Toys introduce  children to more than just science and mathematics concepts. The focus on hands-on learning with real-world applications helps develop a variety of skill sets, including creativity and 21st-century skills.

21st-century skills include: scientific temper, curiosity, productivity, social skills, communication, flexibility and initiative. Other skills attained through STEM education include problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, curiosity, decision making, leadership, entrepreneurship, acceptance of failure and more. Regardless of the future career path considered by children, these skill sets go a long way towards preparing them to be innovative.

Smartivity Core Beliefs:

At Smartivity, we believe in:

The POWER of PLAY, 

The PROMISE of STEM

The PRIDE of MAKING WITH HANDS, 

and 

The POTENTIAL of EVERY CHILD to be a MAKER OF THE FUTURE’.

It is this quartet of beliefs that shape Smartivity STEM educational do-it-yourself toys. 

Children learn the most through play, and retain learning longer when they are immersed in a learning experience mind and body. Instead of rote-learning focussed on scoring higher grades, getting into better colleges and securing a better salaried job, we believe that children should be empowered with an intrinsic understanding of STEM fundamentals as they play. 

Instead of unboxing a toy, playing with it and then dumping it, we believe in ownership that comes with making something with your hands. 

Our do-it-yourself approach empowers children with a belief that they can ‘make’ things. 

The ability to make things is a powerful skill, and even making a simple toy instills a deep self-confidence in children to go ahead and imagine, innovate and build solutions to problems plaguing the world. We believe in the potential of every child to be a makers of a better future. We are committed to inspiring children to realise their true potential as innovators, designers, doers, creators. As makers of our future...
