LeapFrog brings STEM education to pre-schoolers

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, June 30, 2016

LeapFrog brings STEM education to pre-schoolers through first graders.   I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your techstination for gadgets and gear.     The folks at LeapFrog, which is now a part of VTech, are at it again…blending technology with smart, educational and entertaining content for kids.   A new interactive system called LeapStart arrives this summer with a wide variety of content.   Marketing VP Monica Brown says there are four different levels of activity books.…

“Each level has four books that teach fifty critical skills.  And those skills include things like STEM, so science, technology, engineering and math for pre-schoolers, who are really learning everything from what does it mean to make energy to some simple tools and early machines and even a little bit of coding.”

The LeapStart system will be priced at about forty dollars with activity books selling for 12.99.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
