Definition

STEM

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) is a broad term used to group these academic disciplines. In the early 1990s, the acronym STEM was used by a variety of educators in preference to SMET, including Charles E. Vela, the founder, and director of the Center for the Advancement of Hispanics in Science and Engineering Education (CAHSEE). There is no universal agreement on which disciplines are included in STEM; in particular, whether or not the science in STEM includes social sciences, such as psychology, sociology, economics, and political science. This term is typically used to address school education policy or curriculum choices.

Main Digest

Disclosure of Material Connection: Disabled World was offered a BigBoxPlay for free from www.BigBoxPlay.com in consideration for an honest product review article. Like all review products Disabled World receives, the item was donated to a third party. That said, Disabled World chose to write a review for this product because we believe in the power of STEM related toys for kids!

This article is from our digest of publications relating to Accessible Games and Gaming that also includes:

Jonathan Rubin, CEO of BigBoxPlay (BigBoxPlay.com), started a company based in Los Angeles that sells "life-sized" Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) play systems focusing on physical free play, tactile/multi-sensory learning, creativity, and imagination for young children 2-8 years old.

Jonathan believes that kids today spend too much time on digital devices, negatively impacting their cognitive and social development. Studies have consistently shown that excessive use of digital products and the absence of quality playtime adversely impact learning essential "soft" skills such as communications, creativity, social interaction, and collaboration.

Jonathan discovered over the years that children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) seem to have a special love for BigBoxPlay due to its "private" fort-like features where children feel more protected and secure when inside.

BigBoxPlay

BigBoxPlay addresses this negative trend with a unique play system based on children's timeless love of building forts and cardboard boxes. BigBoxPlay is a modular STEM Fort Playhouse for kids. It's made of durable cardboard and is very easy to assemble in a way that fits your space and preferences.

BigBoxPlay's STEM play systems are modular, extremely durable, and personalized but most importantly, they provide endless hours of creative and imaginative enjoyment. BigBoxPlay was recently awarded a prestigious STEM Authenticatedâ„¢ Trustmark by STEM.org, an esteemed company that promotes and teaches STEM around the world and has served over 4,500 schools, districts, and organizations in over 25 countries, as well as such globally recognized brands as Disney, Geomag, Learning Resources, Modular Robotics, Play-Doh, and Magformers.
