We live in Washington. It rains a lot here which means we are inside a lot. That also tends to mean my kids have more screen time than they probably should. I am always looking for things to keep them engaged in alternative ways, especially on rainy days! My First Labs STEM Starter kit gives my kids something really cool to and since technically it still uses a screen my kids are naturally drawn to it.
The STEM Starter Kit turns any smartphone or tablet into a microscope with 60x magnification. It also comes with 15 different 3D specimens on prepared slides for instant exploration right out of the box. Slides include things like sand an fibers. After viewing the slides, kids can get creative and look closely at other items under the microscope that just clips on to their devices camera lense and is view through their camera application.
The STEM Starter Kit boasts 2 light settings for UV and forensic viewing. The kit even includes batteries! My kids really enjoy this “toy”. My daughter discovered the weave of her leggings and the intricacy of sand particles fascinated all of us! At just $19.99, the STEM Starter kit is affordable and also makes a cool gift! It’s small size makes it a great travel toy and encourages STEM curiosity anywhere!
