School today is sooo NOT what we had.  My kids are so much more advance than I was; the experiences are second to none and I truly feel they are amazing little minds now and will be amazing “bigger” minds later.  STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) is a major part of their curriculum now and both my kids absorb it like sponges.  This whole “learning journey” has them thinking outside of the box and all the while boosting their brains as they strive to figure out “how everything can and does” work.

I was so excited to be able to include a wonderful STEM option under the Christmas Tree this year.  Always great to include something fun yet educational that keeps the wheels turning while smiling at the same time.  Techno Gears Marble Mania Extreme 4.0 allows you to create amazing marble runs using 3D connectors, channels and even a battery operated lift!  Endless possibilities that keep your mind going!  This version is around $40; but there are others as well!  This is an AMAZING company with STEM options for all ages!

Think outside the box this holiday season!
