What parents say
STEM fun in a low-tech solution!
Mum of 3 kids, Sweden
This product has been great to help my child feel more confident in STEAM activities. I love that there are guided cards to inspire the creations and to get kids started with the activity. This is also a product that can involve several kids or parents and kids to work on as a group activity.
