Today, November 8th is National STEM day. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math . I'm sure you've heard about the buzz word STEM within your child's education. It is a growing idea to focus on these areas because of advanced careers and how computers have exploded kids are being exposed to technology earlier and excelling. Microduino sent us their Itty Bitty Buggy STEM kit to test out.
My eight year old had a blast playing with Itty Bitty Buggy. This is a great starter kit because the app has many projects that you can build (it shows you piece by piece.) We had even more fun when I just gave my son the pieces and little him build. This kit was very user friendly and skys the limit with your imagination!
The kit comes with everything you need to get started, the only thing you have to do is download the app on a smart phone. I have an iphone so this was no problem. Everything linked up and we were successful with our first project. This was a big deal to me because I'm not very tech savvy.
