My daughter loves all things science, and I love buying her quality educational toys. So I did my research before I started shopping for Christmas and Birthday this year. Here is a list of the BEST STEM Gifts for Girls age 6 - 13. Really some of these would be good for an even wider age range.
What is STEM? STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
