Geomag builds learning into all their toys and incorporates STEM into the foundations of play. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It is these 4 areas in which the children of today will become the real superheroes of tomorrow.
11 out of the top 12 paying jobs all require STEM, and 80% of all future jobs will require one or more of these disciplines.
The American Academy of Paediatrics recommends that children spend 60 minutes a day of open-ended play. Children in Oakland were found to have up to 32% faster brain speeds after 8 weeks of structured gameplay.
Around two-thirds of parents feel their children have too much screen time. Columbia University found that when people know that they will be able to find information online easily, they are less likely to form a memory of it. Learning through play helps build memory. Initiative play builds key STEM skills and decreases the reliance on digital screens.
Many parents feel screen time can keep a child quiet for a little while, screens can help parents get a little space throughout the day and can provide some good learning resources.
Moving away from prolonged screen time can aid a child’s development, as encouraging free play, free building and free-thinking will help a child build lifelong skills.
