Hottest Educational Toys of 2019
In children’s education in the 21st century, the biggest buzzword has been “STEM.” That’s an acronym standing for “Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics,” and everybody wants kids to pick that educational path. The Western world is transitioning from an industrial economy to an informational one.
What that breaks down to is that blue collar work is going away, because machines can usually do it better, while career fields open up for white collar work, something even the best A.I. is light-years from taking over. Top career recommendations this year include technicians, software developers, and analysts.
So where do these toys fit in? They’re the best kind of toys for a certain kind of kid who would rather let their imagination run wild and build something, rather than just accept a pre-designed toy handed down from an entertainment enterprise. These are the kinds of toys belonging to the next generation’s Elon Musk, Richard Feynman, or Linus Torvalds. Granted, that’s a lofty role model, but there’s nothing wrong with shooting for the top talent, since even if you don’t prove out to be the company founder, you can still ride to success based on being that company’s valued early team-mate.
So visit with us the top toys in the STEM education genre. These are the cool kits which can take you from a science fair to an engineering degree to an anchor position at a Silicon Valley start-up. Why not, it’s how Elon Musk started – and hey, those Tesla Roadsters aren’t going to launch themselves into space!
