Let’s Get Qurious!

GET QURIOUS embraces STREAM learning, and goes even one step further by encouraging ‘Whole Child’ development, beginning at a young age.
The Benefits of STREAM Learning
GET QURIOUS activities are developed to spark children’s imagination and whole-brain thinking as they play puzzles and games involving things within their world, or even in a fantasy world. The activities also spark physical activity and socializing with their family and friends. This holistic approach to child development eventually leads them to find their identity and purpose in life, and to nurture humanitarian values within their family, friends, and community.
What is STEM?
S.T.E.M. is an acronym for Science, Technology,
Engineering and Mathematics.
What are STEM toys?
Toys that can help kids develop skills that would be useful in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are called STEM Toys. Check out this article on Huffington Post
Which age group can
play with STEM Toys?
STEM Toys make learning fun for all ages. It’s best to introduce simple STEM concepts at an early age to inculcate curiosity & interest with fun themes that children can relate to. The thematic Get Qurious products are built around various careers, sciences & technology to lead them towards being a “ be a maker “ “being an explorer “ and more.
Will STEM toys be suitable for
preschoolers & toddlers
According to an article in New York Times, “Preschollers prefer to play with the toys that will teach them the most, and they play with those toys in just the way that will give them the most information about how the world works”.
Adults can support STEM for toddlers, by providing appropriate materials for exploration and sharing their curiosity.
What are STEM learning activities?

Stem learning activities - such as those in GET QURIOUS - are ones that embody Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, and support the following characteristics:

  1. Focus on real-world problems.
  2. Encourage experimentation to find solutions from trial/error.
  3. Are hands-on and collaborative, allowing communication to share ideas and make decisions.
  4. Involve working together as a productive team.
  5. Have multiple ways to solve a problem.
  6. Interweave math and science content into the process/solution.
What is the justification of adding Art to STEM to become STEAM?
GET QURIOUS supports adding Art into their products - to become STEAM learning - because Art sparks a child’s imagination and transforms STEM learning into a hands-on experience. Art allows a child to apply creative thinking and design skills so their STEM learning become unique and personal to them.
Why is Reading also added - to become STREAM?
Reading is added to all GET QURIOUS products since its mastery, in combination with communication through speech or writing, also sparks the creative process. Through the Build-a-Story activities in our products, children are learning about story creation, plus understanding how changes in story elements such as characters and storyline can create different outcomes. This type of reading and comprehension skill is essential for mastering their creative thinking for all forms of learning, including the STEM subjects.
Why is STEM or STREAM learning
important at an early age?
STREAM learning in early childhood is important for many reasons. First, it helps young children to explore and understand the world around them. Plus, it allows them to collaborate with their peers, and express their thinking or creativity. Later in life, these children are more able to answer complex questions, investigate issues, and develop solutions for real world problems. Most importantly, studies have shown that children without an aptitude for STEM by middle school will fall behind their peer group in education and their career paths. Lastly, the U.S. is currently only average in global Math and Science (PISA) scores, so this learning is essential for our continued success in the world marketplace.
How can GET QURIOUS activities help with STEM or STREAM learning/development?
GET QURIOUS activities help STREAM learning in many ways. For example, the Space Explorer Box teaches science terminology and reading within the Build a Story activity. Children can then role-play with the Mask Play feature, recording their voices as they create and play back their own stories over and over again.
The Explorer Box also introduces technology, engineering and math within its Build a Spaceship activity. Children are shown how to assemble a rocket ship by scanning four different parts of the ship in a particular order. They then move the digital parts to their correct position, similar with how a 4-piece tangram is put together. In addition, they choose from many different designs and colors of each shape, so each space ship is unique based on their creative choices. Once assembled, the rocket ship blasts off, and children can maneuver around asteroids or destroy them as they explore outer space.
