The Best STEM Building Blocks Sets For Kids (Lego Compatible)

Embracing the art of STEM thinking with the science of construction play from Microduino

Say what comes to your mind when you think about building blocks. Most of us picture preschoolers having hours of fun building towers or stacking blocks. Undoubtedly building blocks are a favorite toddler toy, and they are the mainstay of preschool sensory and motor skill development. However, how old were you when you realized that building blocks can also be used in promoting meaningful STEM skill-building activities. The STEM building blocks from Microduino can stimulate a child’s motor development and improve their sense of spatial reasoning. How? Let’s see!

Why opt for Lego compatible building sets that promote STEM thinking?

Well, at one point or the other, every child might have played with building blocks. But STEM building blocks are different. They can incline your little one to the STEM side of your career and provide ample opportunity to think critically, assess problems, and come up with the best approach or solution. Besides, isn’t Lego every kid’s favorite pass time? When you try to teach your kid something with Lego-compatible building sets, they form a notion in their head that STEM is fun. Instead of seeing STEM subjects in a hierarchically daunting light, they would see STEM subjects as innovative solutions to real-world problems.

When you compel your child that STEM is easy with Lego-compatible building sets, you can debunk the myth that STEM subjects are too difficult. They help to see children how many STEM-related concepts are more manageable than they may even seem. When children engage from an early age with STEM toys, they can realize that mastering math and science are quite attainable goals.

STEM building blocks- The love language for your kid's intuitiveness

Complex block-play is linked with enhanced cognitive functionality and mathematical reasoning. Besides building blocks being the cornerstone of developing a robust interest in engineering and talking about the technological point of view, Microduino has many innovations that keep technology in building blocks simple yet interesting for kids. Discover further let’s break down the benefits of building blocks as per the STEM context of learning:

SCIENCE

When children indulge in block play, they swim in the ocean of scientific facts. With block play, kids can understand the cause and effect of architectural designs and learn about gravity, properties of matter, apparent rules of the inclined plane, stability, weight, and balance as they propagate inductive thinking and experimentation.

TECHNOLOGY

Microduino has introduced the technological side of building blocks. Our building blocks always have a secret hidden quirk that can help to shape up the technological intellect of your little one without any issues.

ENGINEERING

When kids learn problem-solving abilities with block play and build structures based on their preliminary knowledge, they also learn about architecture and the names and functions of different buildings and bridges. As your little ones build their unique structures, they explore the infinite possibilities that different shapes hold in their combinations.

MATHEMATICS

With block play, a child can learn to express mathematical entities like quantity and measurements. When kids sort and match objects based on shapes, sizes, addition, geometry, subtraction, etc., they gain a basic understanding of math. If your kid is a bit older, you can also use block play to help them learn about fractions, geometry, symmetry, graphing, sets, classification, and other advanced mathematical concepts.

Bonus: The artistic side

When you guide your kids in the STEM philosophy, they can understand basic concepts of color psychology, understand designs and embrace various art opportunities for thinking creatively. In addition, kids also learn to develop a variety of other skills with block play as well. These include:

  • Social-emotional skills
  • Language and literary skills
  • Fine cognitive and motor skills, and more
