Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. STEM toys for kids made relatable for children of color. That’s what a company called Brown Toy Box has created with kits focused on subjects like coding, astronomy, chemistry, robotics and more. Founder Terri-Nichelle Bradley…says no screens necessary….just engaging activities and characters..
“Maya is our coding and app genius kid and we are teaching some of the fundamentals, right. So they’ve got like a logic card game in there that really focuses on physicality, but learning some of the functions of logic. And then also binary coding, right. They’re making a bracelet using binary coding.”
Smart and fun. The Brown Toy Box kits are available at Target…and sell for about thirty dollars. The company is working with schools too. You can find more info at www.browntoybox.com.
