Are you looking for a way to promote summer learning? Let me tell you why Sphero SPRK+ was a perfect way to encourage my nine-year this summer to expand his education without realizing it!

Why is Summer Learning Important?
Kids can lose up to two months math skills during summertime! That is a huge hurdle to overcome at the start of the next school year. And math skills are not the only areas to experience the ‘summer slide’ that face most kids today.
How Can You Change This?
We like to approach summertime learning a little different than when they are in school. For us, it needs to fun, relaxed, and less like ‘classroom’ experience! I love to look for STEM products to promote summer learning.
What is STEM?
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. And when you purchase STEM products, you help your kids to develop core skills in these areas that can combat the dreaded summer slide.
Where to Purchase STEM Products?
My favorite place is Best Buy! Why? Best Buy carries STEM products that encourage basic learning games all the way to advanced toys designed to stimulate a child’s mind in the STEM areas. Their products help to develop logic and problem-solving skills your kids need this summer.
