Kontu STEM Blocks are magnetic wooden blocks and rigid cards designed to encourage STEM thinking (science, technology, engineering, and math) in early childhood. Preschool-aged children have an innate ability and desire to learn math. By cementing positive early math knowledge in their minds by age five, children build a positive disposition towards mathematics that will help them attain their full academic potential later in life. Children learn through play!
Playful STEM Exploration:
Explore magnetism, early mathematics, weight & counterbalance, joints & hinges, construction, and other STEM concepts.
Kontu STEM Blocks grow with your child:
As your child grows, you can introduce new learnings appropriate for their development. And of course, you can always add more blocks!
The blocks are great for building simple structures. Kontu STEM Blocks plays well with others including both magnetic and non-magnetic blocks. Your child will also develop spatial reasoning while building both orthogonal and organic structures.
