Did you know Alignex is a proud sponsor of STEM programs? STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math—subjects that help kids develop critical thinking skills, problem-solving skills and interact with real-world challenges. 

With the holidays right around the corner, we've found a wealth of STEM toys out there that help encourage an interest in engineering and technology. According to theconnectory.org, "STEM-related jobs are some of the fastest growing jobs in the county and 80 perfect of all future jobs will require STEM literacy and skills." So inspire a kid in your life this year with a fun interactive STEM toy!
