MGA Entertainment, the world's largest private toy company and creators of S.T.E.A.M. based franchise Project Mc 2, has established November 8 as National S.T.E.M./ S.T.E.A.M. Day. This holiday aims to encourage kids to explore and pursue their interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math skills (STEAM) in fun and engaging ways.
With science and engineering careers growing seventy percent faster than other occupations, the ultimate goal of introducing S.T.E.A.M concepts to kids is to encourage students to take an interest in these subjects at an early age.
By creating a day dedicated to S.T.E.M./S.T.E.A.M., MGAE hopes to ignite a passion and curiosity for these subjects in order to continue America's rich tradition of innovation.
