Are you familiar with STEM? STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Over the past few years, STEM has become a huge success in teaching children. There are schools that are based around STEM learning and lots of great products that help your children develop core skills in these specific areas.
I truly believe the school system is not meant for all children. Not all kids fit one mold and STEM is a great way to teach children in a whole new way. Since learning never stops, there are tons of STEM toys that are designed to stimulate a child’s mind. I got to play with a few while I was at Blog conference a few months ago in the Best Buy Suite. While all of the toys were amazing, one really stuck out – Osmo.
The Osmo Genius Kit is an Award-winning hands-on game system that fosters creativity & problem solving skills. It come 5 downloadable apps: Include Words, Tangram, Newton and Masterpiece and Numbers so your child can enjoy interactive play that encourages creative thinking and social interaction.

I received the Osmo and have had so much playing on it – it’s not just for kids! I’ve spent hours playing with the Tangram app.
Tangram comes with real pieces and connects flawlessly to your Osmo. Arrange tangible puzzle pieces into matching on-screen shapes. Play with a friend or challenge yourself to more advanced levels as your handy-work lights up with each victory.
The Osmo is the perfect way to encourage your child to think outside the box without even trying. It’s a great tool to open their mind’s to another way of thinking. My nieces and nephews absolutely love playing with the Osmo and trying out different games. The Osmo also has other add on games available to purchase so you can have an ever expanding library of fun.
You will need an iPad to connect the Osmo. The following iPads work with Osmo – iPad 2, 3, 4, Mini, Air, Air 2 and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Best Buy carries products from basic learning games to advanced toys designed to stimulate a child’s mind in the STEM areas, helping to develop logic and problem solving skills.
