Rokenbok Play Builds Better Learners
Studies and observations conducted by our research partners found that Rokenbok construction toys support learning by being easy to use, but always holding the potential for great complexity. In this way, Rokenbok has a low floor (easy entry) and a high ceiling (has the potential for great challenge). This creates an ideal learning environment for young minds to play and explore.
Allow For Discovery
Don't give away the design solutions as you build together. Allow your child to construct knowledge of the material world through building experiences. Ask questions about observations. Critical thinking and decision making skills are developed through practice.
Ask open ended questions like, What are you building? What will you build next? How did you put it together? Lively conversation about your Rokenbok world will build vocabulary skills and spatial relation awareness.
As they play and build Rokenbok, preschoolers develop habits identified by teachers as the most important skills for academic success:
Children in elementary school are beginning their academic careers. Rokenbok play builds scientific thinking skills. Rokenbok elementary school engineers:
Rokenbok building materials always hold the potential for more. Your child's desire to create will always be challenged by the system's careful and thoughtful design.
At every grade level students will draw upon that foundations and skills learned in previous years. At the high school level students will gain experience in:
