I sure wish Amazon Stem Club was around when I was a kid

Amazon has started a new program called the Stem Club and it looks really cool.

STEM Club is a monthly program that delivers handpicked, high-quality Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math toys to your door at a great price. Each month you will receive a different, age-appropriate STEM toy that will encourage your child to learn through play. From robotics to natural sciences, there’s always a new discovery on the way. A STEM Club Toy Subscription costs $19.99/month plus applicable taxes. You can cancel your subscription at any time. Subscription and shipping is only available in the United States.

They offer 3 different packages for ages 3-4, 5-7, and 8-13. They don’t offer many examples of the types of toys they send each month, but the surprise seems like half the fun.

Amazon editors work closely with smart and trusted brands we love to handpick the best STEM toys. From programmable robots to rockin’ crystal kits and chemistry sets to cool arithmetic toys, STEM Club will challenge and inspire while expanding young minds through play.

Seems like a good gift for the upcoming Confirmation season.
