FOX5: Popular S.T.R.E.A.M Toys
Have you heard of S.T.E.A.M? It’s an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math, and it represents a trend in educational toys and it’s not going away anytime soon. Earlier this year at the New York Toy Fair, experts declared the next big trend to be S.T.R.E.A.M. and that “R” stands for robotics. Here are some great toys designed to ignite your kids’ curiosity in science and math.
