STEAM is the Future
4 Ways in which STEAM Learning
Prepares your Child for the Future
As a parent, your primary responsibility is to empower your child to succeed in real life, in ‘the future’. But how are you supposed to fulfil this critical role when this ‘future’ itself is changing at an unimaginable pace?
The future, for the most part of our evolution, was ‘anticipate-able’. Not any more.
A parent of an average 11-year-old today, has, in their own lifetime, gone from no phones to instant messaging, no TV to on-demand videos, and inaccessible information to ubiquitous one-click search engines. And the technological revolution has just started.
At Smartivity, we believe that the most effective way to prepare gen-next is to go back to the basics. Application, ingenuity and innovation are the skills that brought about the technological revolution. These very same tools can be weapons for today’s children to shape the future.
And it is in this aspect that STEAM learning becomes critical.
The key benefits of STEAM learning are:
1. Positions the Kid for Success in Real Life
Every report on ‘careers of the future’ lists STEAM-related professions as the most lucrative work options that individuals will have in the future.
While there is a lot of emphasis on STEAM education because of the ‘employability’ value delivered by studying these subjects, there is an even stronger case for understanding STEAM fundamentals because of their inherent ability to shape a better society.
2. Your Kid Grows to be a Contributor, Not Consumer
Strong STEAM understanding prepares your child to innovate and create something to become a contributing member of the future society than just a consumer.
All ‘Making’ requires is confidence in one’s abilities. Makers have the confidence and the spirit to take on bigger real-life challenges to solve bigger problems. They are empowered to be successful at whatever they choose to do. Consumers, on the other hand, simply consume and are often at the mercy of the makers.
3. Nurtures a Scientific Temper
STEAM focussed projects imbibe children with the ability to think in parts, as well as a whole to solve a problem scientifically and rationally.
A thorough grasp of STEAM fundamentals and a mindset oriented towards applying these fundamentals in practical life will be critical values for individuals in the future, irrespective of whether they are artists or technologists, managers or operators. Because it is these values that lead to application, ingenuity and innovation.
4. Enhances Creative + Practical + Analytical Skills
STEAM learning provides children with a mental framework that enhances multiple intelligences and builds a wholesome personality.
Through STEAM learning, a child gains a deeper, hands-on understanding of the concepts and mechanisms involved in making things. This also helps children retain their learning for a longer time than just reading theory, as they have engaged their mind and body in the process.
Is Your Child Ready for a Future where Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are the Foundations for Success?
At Smartivity, we believe in the power of play to help our kids link practical learning to theories they pick up at school.
Our construction toys engage your child’s body and mind, that helps internalize and retain core concepts longer. The Joy & Pride of Making toys with their own hands builds a sense of accomplishment, ownership, responsibility and confidence among our kids.
By far, the coolest thing we built during this lockdown.
Absolutely in love with Smartivity. Wish to get one of each of their products.

Each Smartivity STEAM Educational Construction Toy kit includes Colour-coded, Richly Illustrated, Easy-To-Understand, Step-By-Step Instruction Manual.
The Instruction Manual explains each step with big and clear illustrations from relevant perspectives to help your child understand every step without difficulty.
To avoid distractions and ensure that your child has a complete focus on each step, there is only one step per page. This makes it easy and fun to make Smartivity toys.
Moreover, we have How-to-make videos for every toy on our Youtube channel, for reference.
Once your child has built their Smartivity construction toy, there are multiple gameplays and additional activities integrated in the toy. Your child can play different games and carry out learning experiments with it over and again
Smartivity Construction Toys do not use glue or permanent fixtures in the construction process. All the joinery is with the help of elastic bands.
As a result, your child can dis-assemble and reassemble the toy easily.
Yes, sure they can. In fact, that’s all they want to. Smartivity makes Learning Fun.
Give your child the opportunity to learn what they need to, for a bright future, through a completely new means.
Trust us, they'll enjoy the experience and retain the learning, way longer than traditional rote learning.
On average, every Smartivity toy takes about 120 to 200 minutes to build.
During this time, children learn different concepts of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. .
Once the toy is built, children continue to learn and play with it for a long time.
No. Smartivity toys are absolutely safe for your child to play with on their own.
Your child's safety is our prime priority. The toys are made of high-quality, splinter-proof pinewood to ensure your child's safety.
No glue or tools are needed for construction for a mess-free, hassle-free and safe experience.
As a global brand enjoyed and trusted by parents and children across 24 countries, all our toys are tested in Global Labs to ensure safety and quality.
Our instruction manuals are designed to ensure that your child has independent construction experience.
You can choose to participate (and may not be able to resist) and partner with them, but your child will not be stuck in the construction experience if they are alone.
We have taken all measures to ensure that your child is absolutely safe while using Smartivity toys.
