STEM/STEAM

 

With the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicting that STEM jobs will increase to more than 9 million by 2022, parents are looking for innovative ways to expose their kids to science- and math-based subjects.

The Toy Association has embarked on a multi-year undertaking to bring more clarity to the growing movement of STEM/STEAM (science, technology, engineering, and math, with the recent inclusion of “A” for the arts).

Our reports guide manufacturers in developing products that foster STEM/STEAM discovery and learning.
