STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math has infiltrated our homes, becoming a huge part of our public school curriculum and introducing many of our children to concepts and practices that they never would have experienced at such an early age. These days, the majority of our children’s toys are well-advanced beyond anything we ever had to play with and our kids are excelling rapidly with many of the these new technologies.
Meccano is a company that has embraced the rapid growth of our children’s minds and developed educational toys that are fun, engaging and interactive. Rather than purchasing something your child will play with once and then discard, Meccano inspires children to enjoy building, programming, coding and even gaming with their creations. From interactive robots to automobile assembly, introduce children of any age to the “toys” of the future…lessons in engineering and robotics are no longer for those in a lab, but for your kids right in your living room.
