Encourage STEM Learning with Circuit Cubes

 As a mother you hear a lot about all the things you need to teach your child. Society, the education system, other parents and media flood you with advice on how to raise your child. One of the major educational focus teachers have in the last few years are STEM learning programs. What is the STEM approach people are talking about, you might ask? It centers around Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. I like to encourage my son by learn through his play. When ever I can find a "toy" that does just that I like to share it with other parents!! Recently we have been all about Spirograph! While shopping around online I found this STEM focused Spirograph, Circuit Cubes. We have been hooked with creating new technology creations and doodling on paper ever since!
  **I received a free products to facilitate my review. I was not required to write a positive review in any way. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC Regulations.
What are Circuit Cubes??
Circuit Cubes are electronic building blocks that add sound, motion, light, and sensors to young Makers’ creations. Designed by STEM teachers, Circuit Cubes provide an easy-to-use platform that helps kids develop confidence while experiencing the joy of discovery. Whether a design uses your own building bricks, favorite vintage toys, or pool noodles — with three Circuit Cubes, you can create just about anything you can imagine!
In our box it came with instructions for a few different types you can create. Because this is a Art based box it helps you fuse Art with technology!
 By connecting the motor (via wires) you can move your markers around the paper creating different shapes. Each new "robot" creation draws different pictures. Like I said my son and I have had a fun time creating new ways to push the markers and create little artwork "masterpieces".
I think we both agree the one's that formulate the Spirograph are our personal favorites! This  Circuit Cubes kit came with everything you need and even a booklet of suggestions/instructions. Just simply charge the motor and you can easily get started!

  2. I really need to get my kids exploring more of this type of toys. I want them to get into coding but it's so expensive ... I need to do more research.

  3. This is super neat! I cannot wait till my tiny human is big enough for science toys and learning like this! Have you seen the computers that kiddos can build and code? I love that idea as well!
