Max Medroso is the founder of TheSTEMKids, a STEM-education based business that started during the beginning of the pandemic. It combines his knowledge in entrepreneurship with his passion for science in order to deliver quality products to customers.
Through his business, he offers learning gadgets and science toys for curiosity minded children.
Medroso’s main product is the Young Explorer’s Portable Microscope. With the present state of the pandemic, he wanted to provide a gadget that can keep kids engaged at home while also spurring their interest in science concepts.
Unlike other science toys, the handheld microscope is easy to use and for all ages. Its “point-and-view design” means that you can simply point the microscope at plants and insects to examine them and unlock the treasures of the microcosms.
The store’s other products include a levitating globe and pre-prepared microscope slides of various bug samples.
“TheSTEMKids aims to transform the idea of what it means to do science through its products,” Medroso said. “It’s not just about memorizing facts from a textbook but also about inquiry and hands-on discovery.” With most children participating in online learning during the pandemic, the idea of being able to learn hands-on at home is more important than ever.
Research shows that this type of learning allows students to become more comfortable with their skills rather than just watching or reading about it. Hands-on learning promotes full participation and the ability to learn through trial and error. They can experiment with tools and problems that target their untapped potential as learners.
The handheld microscope grants children unlimited freedom to explore their surroundings, which makes it to be an overall interactive experience.
Medroso is actively working on improving the product to make it even better, and he plans to expand the product line in a way that aligns with TheSTEMKids mission of nurturing young leaders. People who are interested in the handheld portable microscope can find it here at www.thestemkids.com
