Welcome to our video podcast: Different voices and Different Eyes on learning, parenting, education and more. Myriam talks with Maedhbh Rogan, Senior Executive Librarian for Meath County Council Library Services. about the STEAM Toys selection they purchased from Mimitoys for their Packpacks.
In August 2022, Meath County Council and Meath Libraries have launched STEAM backpacks that can be borrowed from Meath libraries. All free with your library card!
An amazing initiative and a fantastic way to introduce young children and their parents to STEAM subjects with themes such as Animals, Bugs – Bees & Butterflies, Build it, Coding, Colour & Art, The Great Outdoors, I’m a scientist, Magnets, Maths, Motion – Gravity & Forces, Music, My Amazing Body, Space, Water, Weather.
There are 15 different backpacks that have been well though of, to cover all STEAM aspects in a fun and engaging way with hands-on activities.
The STEAM backpacks project has been funded by the Meta Data Center Community Action Grants. Meta Data Center Community Action Grants are one of many ways that Meta gives back to communities where they have a data center.
Meta’s grants are for non-profit organisations for projects that benefit the community by putting the power of technology to use for community benefit, improving STEM Education (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) locally and connecting people online or offline. Between Meath Library, Meta and Mimitoys Steam Toys were purchased.
With my video podcasts, I am interested in having a chat with people who are experiencing and encouraging learning, play, education, parenting and anything to do with children’s growth and well-being, but from a new or different angle. I hope you find this video podcast interesting, entertaining and fun.
During our conversation Maedhbh mentions some of the STEAM toys included in the packs. Some of them were sourced from Mimitoys and with this blog, I have reviewed the toys bought from us, including the Wobbly Wall!
