Kids today live in a much different world than when I was growing up. Computers and technology are all around them and learning to live and create in this world is important. STEM education is something that kids are learning younger and younger and will help them in this new (to us) world.
WHAT IS STEM EDUCATION?
This post is in partnership with Spin Master. All opinions are my own.
STEM education focuses on 4 specific areas – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and is a great learning tool for those students whose minds love science and math challenges. Meccano M.A.X. is a great way to introduce kids to STEM education, programming, and technology.
We received Meccano M.A.X. and my daughter was excited to build it and to start “coding” M.A.X.’s special abilities. Meccano M.A.X. is geared for children 10 years of age and older and is the perfect project to get mom or dad involved in. Spending time together assembling M.A.X. will be quality bonding time you will not soon forget!
Meccano M.A.X. is the most advanced robotics technology, by combining Artificial Intelligence learning and custom programming to create a one-of-a-kind personal companion. After building M.A.X., you child will be able to introduce themselves and allow M.A.X. to get to know them, their interests, and their family. M.A.X. is also a social robot, which means he can learn more tasks and remember personal information about each individual.
M.A.X. has many great features like delivery mode, custom jokes, code breaker and choose your own adventure!
The delivery mode allows you to put an item in his hand and send him off to find the person you want it delivered to. You can even play a customizable message to your recipient. My daughter had M.A.X. deliver an item to me. M.A.X. “walked” around the house asking everyone he met if they were “Mom”. Once he found me, he asked me to put out my hand so he could deliver the item and played me my personalized message!
M.A.X. can also tell jokes. And let me tell you, there have been many hours of laughter thanks to our new friend. M.A.X. can learn over 50 jokes, and you can even program your own jokes so that M.A.X. can perform your jokes to others!
1 Mommy Moment reader will WIN a Meccano M.A.X. valued at $150.00!
