What is our background – Our journey with STEM started in 2017 when we launched our first code club here in Melbourne. Our code clubs focus on delivering STEM education for kids/adults and cater to ~20 kids per class. Over the last few years our code club has grown immensely, resulting in the launch of a second code club here in Melbourne, Australia. We are immensely grateful to the support from the local community and we would like to thank you for your support as well. Our choice of products at OzToyLib are informed on the work we do and are continuing to do working with kids/adults on coding, electronics robotics at each of our code clubs here in Melbourne, Australia.
Our approach at OzToyLib has always and will continue to be informed by the learning, experience we gain from running STEM programs and code clubs for kids/adults here in Melbourne, Australia. A large part of the STEM products that we offer at our store are STEM products that we would have used or continue to use across the various STEM learning tracks we offer our kids at our Code Club here in Melbourne, Australia.
When you do get a chance please do head over check out the various FREE STEM learning tracks at KidzCanCode and KidzCanCode Learning Management System. You can learn more about our Code Club at CoderDojo Altona North and CoderDojo Docklands.
Why STEM, Why Now – In today’s fast moving & rapidly changing world we have realized that it’s impossible to predict what tomorrow’s jobs will look like. However, what we know for sure is that tomorrow’s jobs will increasingly demand critical thinking, analytical reasoning and problem solving skills.
STEM learning through its focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math helps kids of all ages build those critical thinking, analytical reasoning, problem solving skills and along the way helps infuse a real sense of curiosity in the world around them. Our hands on approach to STEM learning is designed to Ignite Curiosity, Inspire love for learning, experimenting and helping kids be creative and uncover the Innovator inside.
