SmartMax Donation Helps Students Learn STEM Concepts
SAN FRANCISCO – February 6, 2014 – Smart Toys and Games, Inc., a leading producer of award-winning single-player logic games and the SmartMax® magnetic construction system has partnered with Hooked on Science, donating building sets that students can playfully explore the wonders of magnetism as part of learning STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) concepts.
Hooked on Science inspires students to be inquisitive about the world around them and to develop a long-term interest in science and math. While working in groups, students will use the SmartMax School Sets for hands-on experiments. They will discover the science behind the SmartMax magnets and engineering structures.
“Kids learn best through hands-on experiments,” said Jason Lindsey, executive director at Hooked on Science. “SmartMax allows educators to teach kids all about magnets through hands-on investigations. The best part about SmartMax is that kids don’t realize they are actually learning while having fun.”
SmartMax School Sets come with 100 colorful pieces including: 48 short yellow bars, eight medium-length red bars, 18 long blue bars, and 26 large and easy to manipulate magnetic balls, all in a clear bin for easy storage. SmartMax sets provide children the chance to experience the wonders of magnetism and the fascinating world of construction in a safe way, even from a very young age.
The diverse SmartMax line includes vehicle sets, glow in the dark pieces, and LED lit pieces, all of which can be combined with other sets for endless combinations. To date, SmartMax has received numerous awards and honors including: the TOY INSIDER’s HOT HOLIDAY TOYS list, Parents’ Choice Awards, National Parenting Publication Awards, National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval, Tillywig Top Fun Awards, Creative Child Awards, Major Fun Awards, PAL Awards, among others.
SmartMax School Sets are available on Amazon.com, Target.com, Walmart.com, www.SmartToysAndGames.com, and quality toy stores everywhere.
Brain-building fun for both children and adults can also be had online at www.SmartGamesLive.com, where Smart Toys and Games has made fourteen of their single-player puzzle games available virtually at various levels including Starter, Junior, Expert, or Master.
