Education is of the highest importance today for children and thanks to Chris Cochella, creator of the award winning “Bionic Blox”, the Bionic Blox created a world of wonder for children through The Toy Man ®S.T.E.M. Program yesterday at the Albert H. Soliz Library.
The brilliance of Bionic Blox is that concept behind this US-made toy is simple: star connectors link up with wooden blocks. Bionic Blox star connectors also work with KEVA Planks and Citiblocs if you have those.
BionicBlox and Head Start bring STEM education topics like math and physics to early childhood education through play and fun.
BionicBlox award-winning educational toy is entered into the Grow America Product Innovation Competition. The top three winners will receive $20,000, $10,000 and $5,000. Winners are determined by popular vote and an internal review of the product and business. Please support BionicBlox by voting once-a-day! Happy Building!

STEM Toys, Open-Ended Play and What-If Creating This is a clear and short article on how allowing kids (pre-k through elementary school) to build and create with the open-endedness of raw materials promotes STEM Education. Alas, that is the spirit of the BionicBlox wooden building and innovation set for kids. STEM – Science, Toys, Engineering [...]
The Children’s Museum of Providence Rhode Island is adding BionicBlox and BionicStars to their existing stacking block and wooden block exhibit. Kids build with interesting blocks of all shapes and sizes in Discovery Studio, the Museum’s open-ended art and science exploration space. Stack blocks to construct tall towers, experiment with tangram puzzles, and build on [...]
STEM Education is alive and well at the Museum of Discovery in Little Rock, Arkansas. This tower was made by our 7 to 10 year old 2013 winter campers at the Museum of Discovery in Little Rock, Arkansas. We discussed structural integrity, problem solving, and teamwork. Our design and build integrated two separate towers into [...]
Fort Worth Museum of Science has been exhibiting the award winning BionicStar connectors along with Keva Planks for months now. In addition to promoting science teaching success with BionicBlox they are on display in their STEM education tinkering lab the educational outreach program uses them in schools to teach science and engineering concepts. Kids and [...]
Science Centers and Museums are some of the first to focus on STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
