How Do I Get My Child Started in Engineering

Joe Wolf Education

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, engineering jobs are one of the fastest growing and highest paying career options! Even if your child isn’t planning for a career in engineering, being able to tinker, build, and repair is critical in our high-tech world. 

In fact, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio lists STEM and tech toys as one of the hottest growing trends in children’s toys. Why not get in on the trend with some fun engineering games from Thimble?

Thanks to Thimble’s engineering classes for kids, it’s easy to get your child started in STEM learning. Here are four ways our engineering kits for kids can help boost your child’s education and enthusiasm:

Hands-on projects

Research shows that all students learn better when they have an opportunity to try things out, rather than simply reading a textbook or watching a teacher lecture. That’s why all of our engineering kits for kids include accessible, hands-on elements that let students play and experiment. 

Fun, engaging engineering toys

Learning engineering skills isn’t easy – that’s why Thimble develops relevant and exciting engineering games for kids. Playful, fun activities help keep kids focused and ensure that the learning never ends!

Age appropriate engineering classes for kids

Since most elementary schools don’t include specific STEM courses, engineering kits for kids are the best way to connect your grade schooler to these concepts.

At Thimble, we specifically develop some of our engineering toys for 10 year olds, which is a great age to get started as a beginner with engineering.

Got an older student interested in engineering? No problem! Check out one of our higher-level engineering kits for kids!

Guided video learning

Even though our engineering kits for kids come with everything your student needs to start their own project, many students need a little extra help to get started.

A Thimble subscription includes not only includes the materials for STEM projects and toys, but also access to online engineering classes for kids and live build-alongs so your budding engineer can ask questions and get expert guidance.
