STEM Gift ideas

There is a new surge in codable, hands-on toys for young children. Through a STEM initiative in our district (#icancode) we are experiencing some of the fun of Dash & Dot, Sphero, Ollie, Code.org, and Tynker, to name a few. I found a few blog posts with reviews of these and more:

  3. Also, EPIC books would be a nice gift for children with access to tablets for reading.  Subscriptions are not expensive and help support their free-for-the- classroom app.
