Will they create the next “big thing?” They will when they kick start their ideas!

The Idea Box can help improve STEM/STEAM skill sets by keeping kids so engaged they don't even know they're learning. By taking advantage of a kid's natural interest in building toys, this kit allows them to use their imagination and inspires them to think for themselves.
STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math - skills that kids must adopt in order to stay relevant in today's tech-centic world.
