Since the beginning of time, children have used their playtime as an experimental run for adulthood, from children in the Cro-Magnon era practicing the hand-eye coordination they need during a hunt by playing rudimentary jacks to kids in the Victorian era riding a rocking horse as a preamble of riding an actual horse. While the average modern child may not need to hunt for their food or know how to ride a horse to travel anywhere, children will be benefitted by STEM-centric toys that can prepare them for a future in the career.
From a basic chemistry set that can be upgraded as the child gets older and constructible doll houses for the precocious little builder who doesn’t just want to play with dolls to paleontology kits complete with pseudo dinosaur bones and robotic toys that can be programmed to interact based on unique commands, there is an entire market set up by scientists to act as beginner courses for the next generation of scientists. Even traditional setups like an ant farm can encourage children to learn more about the world around them. A microscope will aid them in finding out about the microcosm that exists everywhere and a DIY rocket kit can send their curiosity in the worlds beyond us to the sky. With the proper supervision and encouragement, nurturing their interest in the sciences has never been easier.
