Check out Tinkering Labs Young Inventors Hall of Fame page and look at these young kids with their very bright ideas, https://tinkeringlabs.com/inventors/
“STEM kit” allows kids to build doodling robots, power electric model cars, add motors to legos, and more! Comes with markers…can be used in the building process but the company also learned that when kids feel stuck, having an artistic avenue helps them recalibrate and then solve the problem. I highly recommend these products for our kids and grandkids , too many children are hooked on computer & games, our children do not get enough hands on projects to use their minds and skills , We need more companies like Tinkering Labs.
