You might already be familiar with the STEM pillars of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. What's lesser known is that in Singapore, there's a unit in the Science Centre dedicated to igniting students’ passion for STEM.
Initiatives to support the STEM Applied Learning Programme (ALP) in secondary schools are supported by the Ministry of Education, which sanctions programmes such as Industrial Partnership Programme (IPP), creating opportunities for students to get early exposure to the real-world STEM industries and careers. The goal is to inspire a generation of scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.
Now for an even lesser known concept: Arts are slowly being incorporated worldwide into STEM, forming the acronym STEAM. The purpose is to inculcate an educational discipline that sparks children's well-rounded interest in sciences and arts from an early age.
With that said, where can parents find a one-stop shop with all the toys and learning peripherals they need for their children? Look no further than Amazon's STEAM store. The STEAM store delivers a catalogue of over 2,000 educational toys and books in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and math for children of all ages.
