The U.S. Department of Commerce reported that employment in STEM occupations grew much faster than employment in non-STEM occupations over the last decade (24.4% vs. 4.0%, respectively).

With STEM occupations projected to grow by 8.9% from 2014 to 2024, compared to 6.4% growth for non-STEM occupations, 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 and our new STEAM Accreditation Program, in partnership with Dr. Gummer’s Good Play Guide, provides toy companies with an independent, third-party product review and “stamp of approval".
