STEM.org authenticates Geomagworld ranges, Magicube & Geomag
The Early Years STEM.org Authenticated™ Trustmark has been bestowed to the innovative Magicube range. Magicube sets stimulate creative free building for children from as young as six months. This innovative toy is a building system made up of magnetic cubes that attach to each other on all six sides. By playing with the individual cubes, even the youngest of children begin to develop their first manual skills. Magicube is available in a range of styles including the new green range which is made from 100% recycled plastic. The Early Years STEM.org Authenticated™ Trustmark was awarded to 16 new Magicube, including items across its 100% recycled plastics range and its picture cubes sets.
The STEM.org Authenticated™ Trustmark was awarded to 11 of its new Geomag lines, all of which are made with 100% recycled plastic. With Geomag, you can build endless 3D structures, thanks to the magical forces of magnetism, unleashing creativity as you play. The magnetic rods, steel spheres and panels of different shapes form the magnetic construction system that made the brand famous all over the world.
Andrea Calastri, VP Marketing Geomagworld comments, “Our vocation at Geomagworld is to encourage learning through play with our magnetic construction platforms and the magic of invisible forces. Inspiration comes directly from teachers who spontaneously over the years have used Geomag products as teaching tools, creating a unique educational experience. We are delighted to receive the Early Years STEM.org Authenticated™ and STEM.org Authenticated™ Trustmark’s and with them the recognition of the educational properties of the Magicube and Geomag ranges. It positive to see that our interdisciplinary approach to STEM learning represents real-life experiences and applications”.
Andrew B. Raupp, Executive Director, STEM.org also comments, “Geomagworld SA’s products collectively achieved a score that placed both Magicube and Geomag in the top 98th percentile of all lines that our team has evaluated since we began authenticating STEM products in 2014. The brand is almost a decade ahead of others as it not only promotes open-ended play and facilitates STEM pedagogy at home and in the classroom, but genuinely takes into consideration sustainability. From the materials it uses in its products, to its recycled cardboard packaging—it checks all of the boxes for us here at STEM.org Educational Research™. We believe that these engaging toys will continue to gain in popularity due to the value and quality of each set and 21st Century Learners will choose in favour of Geomag, as it continues to support STEM education in the years ahead."
