STEM toy see the world through the eyes of animals
A set for assembling glasses that allow you to see the world through the eyes of animals
This is an amazingly original toy that allows the child to look at the world like a snail, eagle and even a horse. Literally! This is a set to build your own glasses, in which the child only changes lenses and mirrors to be able to enter the animal's skin and feel like it for a moment. It is a fascinating and somewhat confusing experience that enables children to better understand the world around them.
How it's working?
Build safety glasses and insert different optical lenses and mirrors to change the field of view and see the world like:
Insect (kaleidoscopic vision)
Animals that have snail-like eyes above their head (upward vision)
Eagle (downward vision)
Horse (lateral vision - from 2 sides simultaneously)
What does the kit teach?
The role of the brain in seeing
What is binocular vision and why do we have two eyes?
Perceive the differences between the way of seeing a prey and a predator
Finding connections between the animal world and science (biomimicry)

What is STEAM pedagogy and why should you use it? It's science and art rolled into one. STEAM abbreviation comes from a combination of English words: science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics. It means an innovative approach to education and upbringing, based on independent, even tangible experience of science by children. By constructing everyday objects on their own, toddlers learn to think outside the box, look for their own solutions and, as a result, develop connections between the right and left hemispheres of the brain. STEAM toys refer to the foundations of the Maker movement, inviting children to understand the history, materials and mechanisms that are hidden in the objects around us. It is an adequate response to the ubiquitous consumerism and an excessive amount of stimuli from the virtual world, as well as a nod to children's curiosity.
