S.T.E.M Kits | Construction

Learning through discovery.

We’ve all had to experience learning. But few of us had the chance as children to discover the phenomena which give rise to fundamental concepts in art, chemistry, physics, architecture, math, engineering and many other disciplines. Concepts such as proportion, fractals, symmetry, chirality, minimal surfaces, polyhedra, stellations, tessellations, trusses, lattices and space frames.

It’s not just that they can learn the concept. They can explore the concepts in such a way that they gain a sense of ownership over their understanding.
