Kontu STEM Blocks are magnetic wooden blocks and rigid cards designed to encourage STEM thinking (science, technology, engineering, and math) in early childhood. Preschool-aged children have an innate ability and desire to learn math. By cementing positive early math knowledge in their minds by age five, children build a positive disposition towards mathematics that will help them attain their full academic potential later in life. Children learn through play!
Playful STEM Exploration: Explore magnetism, early mathematics, weight & counterbalance, joints & hinges, construction, and other STEM concepts.
Kontu STEM Blocks grow with your child: As your child grows, you can introduce new learnings appropriate for their development. And of course, you can always add more blocks!
Constructive Play: The blocks are great for building simple structures. Kontu STEM Blocks plays well with others including both magnetic and non-magnetic blocks. Your child will also develop spatial reasoning while building both orthogonal and organic structures.
Made from wood - not plastic: Made in Thailand from sustainably-harvested rubber tree wood and rare earth magnets and is meant to last for generations.
Sustainably Sourced: Rubber trees grown on plantations are harvested once they stop producing latex sap and new trees are planted to replace them.
Each Kontu STEM Blocks kit includes number cards (0-10), activity cards (8), and a card stand.
