What is STEM?
STEM, a term often used today, means Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (for its abbreviations in English). And the reason for its pervasiveness is that it is an important part of the teaching curriculum. In practice, this means that educators set aside individual disciplines and adopt an approach based on skills and projects. In other words, it means making learning more interesting and attractive.
Models for children and adults?
The models in this range are adapted to the age of the user. They are an understandable way to study widely used mechanisms, transmission and coupling systems as well as their practical applications in real life. Each Ugears STEM-lab model is developed to serve as a practical guide for teaching mechanics and physics to students between the ages of 8 and 14. They are also suitable for family activities applying STEM studies. Explaining things to a child using a Ugears STEM-lab model as a case study strengthens the bonds you have with your children. By moving through the different stages of the Ugears STEM project step by step, you will get to know different mechanisms in depth - literally. And as a result, what seemed like unexplainable mechanical magic becomes evident and understandable. As with the rest of the Ugears collections, the assembly of the STEM-lab models is fun and comprehensive: everything needed for assembly, learning and discovery is in the box .
Why STEM educational toys?
The new range of Ugears models adopts the name STEM and its main concept. With each model, you get the toolkit for a STEM project and a challenge to meet. You will receive everything you need in the box and you only have to decide who you want to invite to be part of your project team: your parents, siblings or friends. Each of the mechanical models in the STEM-lab collection is an interactive study tool for a mechanism. Assembling them with your own hands will help you to understand perfectly the principles of their operation. Extend your learning experience even further with the Ugears augmented reality application. Photograph a fully assembled STEM-lab model with your tablet camera or mobile phone and the app will show you various uses of the mechanism you have just built. You will see how it is used in machines, buildings and industrial constructions. Explore it from different angles, get a close-up and an overview.
The Ugears STEM-lab mechanical wooden models are great original gifts for any occasion and practical STEM projects for children and adults of all ages. Make your learning experience even more fascinating; discover how smart you are and how creative you can be. Give the best of yourself to children, teaching them essential mechanical, mathematical and engineering skills and say you are proud of them.
All natural material
Made of ecological wood from sustainable sources, all Ugears STEM-lab models are easy to assemble without the use of glue or special tools thanks to our patented plywood joints. You will work with a natural material that is pleasant to the touch. The high quality plywood used is durable enough, but replacements may be needed. We have added individual parts in each box, however, if you need additional parts, please email us at [email protected]
and we will send them to you by post free of charge.
