STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) toys have always been around, forcing kids to calculate, measure, and create — in essence, think — as they played. These 67 products that fall under the STEAM umbrella are as educational as they are enjoyable — we even found some kids and moms to tell you so.
"It was so much fun! The wheel was hard to put together but otherwise, it is very good. It took me 3 tries to make it right.” - Emily, 8 on the Mechanical Sweeper. "It was fun and challenging making the spin art machine. I liked the kit because even when we were done making the machine, we can still make beautiful art." - Maylin, 11 on the Spin Art Machine.
