If your kids love science, technology, engineering, and/or math, then they will love this new Let’s Learn: Kids STEM DVD from Nickelodeon that makes learning fun!
Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures have teamed up to bring fun and educational DVD’s into your home. Let’s Learn: Kids STEM DVD brings science, technology, engineering, and math right into your living room. I am excited to tell you about it on OMG Goodies.
My thoughts on Let’s Learn: Kids STEM DVD Vol. 2:
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Educators are trying to put an emphasis on these four areas, so when the students of today are the workers of tomorrow they will be able to help our society advance and grow. STEM learning starts young, as young as preschool age and helps kids learn and enjoy the sciences. This Kids STEM DVD is a great way to make learning sceinces fun!
Even though my son is only 18 months old and didn’t really understand what is going on in the DVD, he enjoyed watching all the action found in the Let’s Learn: Kids STEM DVD. I also enjoyed because I learned new information I didn’t know before while also learning easy ways to teach kids about STEM topics.
This Kids STEM DVD is 144 minutes long and features 7 episodes. They include: Blaze and the Monster Machines: Cake-Tastrophe, Blaze and The Monster Machines: Runaway Rocket, Paw Patrol: Pups Save Walinda and Pups Save a Big Bone, Dora and Friends: Into the City: Kite Day, and Team Umizoomi: Job Well Done and Race to the Top of Shape Mountain. It also comes with a worksheet to do with your kids.
Blaze and the Monster Machines: Cake-Tastrophe is about cake making robots that go crazy and make too many cakes. Blaze and his friends have to stop them and clean up the mess. They taught my son about trajectory – what it means and how to calculate it. It was a super fun episode!
Blaze and the Monster machines: Runaway Rocket was about winning different games and the science behind it. The main story in the episode is trying to rescue a runway rocket. This episode was good, but not my son’s favorite.
Paw Patrol: Pups Save Walinda is about how the pups save a walrus and her baby. My son learned about walrus’ – where they live and what they eat. He loved to watch the animals in the show.
Paw Patrol: Pups Save a Big Bone is about using technology to save two scientists who found a giant dinosaur bone and got themselves into trouble. The pups have to figure out the best way to get the bone and the scientists safely down from high cliff. My son enjoyed watching the pups use technology, especially the big machines.
My son does not like Dora and friends : Into the City: Kite Day. He always gets bored and wanders off when it comes on. I tried to watch it as well, but was easily distracted. I think it was about them losing their kite and having to find it in time for the big kite festival. I never really liked Dora.
Team Umizoomi: Job Well Done is about making enough money to buy a bike. The team all take different jobs and earn money to save up for it. They have to solve problems to earn the money and then count the money. They learn a lot about math in this episode and my son enjoyed it.
Team Umizoomi: Race to the Top of Shape Mountain is about Team Umizoomi racing to the top of the mountain to get the special prize. On the way to the top they collect and learn about different shapes.
Over all, the Lets Learn: Kids STEM 2 DVD was really good! My son enjoyed most of the episodes. I feel comfortable allowing him to watch a few episodes and not feel guilty about it; he is learning while being entertained. I am sure when he gets older he will pick up on all the math, science, engineering, and technology terms. I would recommend this Kids STEM DVD to anyone, but especially to parents of kids who like math and science!
