STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Educational experts have highlighted these areas as growing exponentially saying that over 1 million new jobs will be created in the next 20 years for those qualified in the subjects. As a result, governments around the world have encouraged initiatives that seek to stimulate learning of STEM from a young age.
The educational theory behind DolceToys is that there is no better way to learn cognitive skills at an early age than through play. It’s no secret that individuals are a lot more engaged when they are genuinely interested in something. As a result, the more entertaining something is, the more engaged children will be.
Toy companies and the mass media have been largely criticized over the last few decades for exploiting engagement without offering educational benefits simultaneously. Simple television shows and toys that rely upon flashing lights, crass joke and instant gratification will engage children without developing cognitive functions at a crucial age of learning. DolceToys tries to reverse this process with a wide range of products that will engage children in order to help them learn.
