STEMWerkz Review

STEMWerkz is a fun environment for kids to learn about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The content is interactive, and kids can access it either by following a structured path or pursuing their interests.

The learning material in STEMWerkz is aimed at kids aged 5 to 12. It works best in either iOS or Android app form but can also be used via the web. STEMWerkz is a subscription app with a free 30-day trial.

STEMWerkz Features

STEMWerkz is packed with animated and interactive content for kids to learn about STEM topics (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

There are three ways to use the app:

  • STEMWerkz Quests use a defined structure to guide kids through the learning material and interactives.
  • STEMWerkz Channel is a more free-form way to access the content. 
  • STEAMValley is a game-style activity where STEM learning and city building are combined alongside an animated storyline.

How much does STEMWerkz cost?

STEMWerkz is free to download, and as mentioned earlier, it is effortless to set up a trial subscription through its website, which lasts 7 days. During the trial, your kids get full access to the app's content.

Ongoing subscriptions are priced reasonably. There is a discount for a yearly subscription over the equivalent time as a monthly subscription.

Is it good for learning?

As you'd expect, STEMWerkz provides excellent coverage of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics topics. An advantage of covering them in a single app is that they can be addressed in tandem, where appropriate. This approach helps to develop a more coherent understanding.

The Pros of using STEMWerkz

Some apps make you work for your free trial, but for STEMWerkz, it is refreshingly easy.

When you first subscribe via the website, you don't have to enter any payment details or even an email address. After entering a user name, password and age, your kid is good to go. This is so much better than apps that ask for loads of details when you don't even know if you will remain a subscriber.

As you'll see in this STEMWerkz app review, you are likely to be tempted to give your kids long-term access.

STEMWerkz is beautifully presented and makes a huge amount of varied content available to your kids.

The three modes of play help the app fit in with the style of learning that suits your kids' needs the best. They are well thought out and implemented.

The Cons of using STEMWerkz

While all of the explanations in the interactives are spoken aloud, the questions and answers are exceptions. Kids with weak literacy skills are often held back in other subjects, like STEM ones. For kids at the younger end of the age range or even older ones who struggle with literacy, it is a shame that STEMWerkz doesn't go the extra step and narrate all of the content.

How much of a disadvantage this is to your kids will depend upon their literacy level and ability to decode words.

Benefits for Students

Kids tend to enjoy STEM subjects when they are taught in a relevant and interesting way. STEMWerkz manages to do this. With a stimulating mix of delivered and interactive content, kids will find a compelling learning experience that they can enjoy for a long time.

Benefits for Teachers

Volume purchases of STEMWerkz are available by contacting the app's team through the website. The app would provide a varied learning environment for a class of kids and allow them to go at their own pace.

A single copy of the app provides teachers with a vast bank of teaching material to use at the front of the class on a shared screen. Using STEMWerkz's web-based version or the app mirrored to a display, teachers can talk with the class and discuss what is shown. It is all easy to access in the STEMWerkz Channel section.

Benefits for Parents

Adults who set up a parent account can observe how their child is progressing in the app. They can use what they see to support kids by talking about the different topics. This feedback is also useful for parents to ensure that their kids use the app enough to warrant the subscription costs.
