National Geographic is home to a thoughtful selection of educational kids toys, games, activity kits, books, and more that engage young minds and foster a lifetime of discovery through fun and hands-on learning. The leading concept in 21st-century education is STEMscience, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It’s a cross-disciplinary approach to learning that entrepreneurs and educators believe is key to a healthy innovation economy. At National Geographic we believe that art and design also play a vital role in exploration, so we count ourselves among those who take a broader view: from STEM to STEAM.
We’re proud to have been supporters of STEAM learning since long before the acronym was invented. Anyone who has watched a child open a present only to set the gift aside and play with the box knows that kids have an innate curiosity and desire to explore and understand their world. National Geographic explorers never lose that curiosity, and it has lead to some of the most remarkable discoveries in the last 125 years.
My daughter really enjoyed this. Many different things to try with it, from changing the consitancy of the paints, to how/where applied, to making/adding cutouts, etc. The resulting artwork makes fun decorations.
