This is the age of technological innovation in every sphere of life. Every single day, we hear about some or the other new technology that is changing things as we know them. The best people who are poised to learn and adapt to these innovations are the little ones around us – the kids!
Since children are constantly on the lookout for what to do next, keeping them occupied (or calm) is a huge task in itself. What better than to take on two-in-one role of teacher and friend yourself and help them learn something while they think they are just playing?
At Kidpillar, we created this highly visual but easy-to-remember list for parents to keep their young children (in the ages 5 to 10) busy, with a fun list of games and do-it-yourself (DIY) activities that will specifically teach them more about STEM.
STEM, as you might know, is an acronym for Science Technology Engineering Mathematics. In the Age of Knowledge, it is imperative for kids to have strong STEM fundamentals in order to prepare them for the grueling 12-15 years of academic education. But these topics don’t have to be boring at all (unlike when we were in school)!
Unfortunately, school education hasn’t kept up with innovation, much like the clerks and bureaucrats in the patent office a century ago. Therefore, it’s up to you, dear parent, to make sure your little ones develop the aptitude and the capacity to ingest and ingrain the deluge of information this world is going to bury them under as they grow up!
In fact, there are a lot of simple and enjoyable things in and around your house that you can use to guide children on their innate quest and curiosity for knowledge about the things around them. This infographic will take you through these options. And oh, if you’re not sure how something works, just google it!
