PROJECT PLANS

 

This curriculum compatible toy empowers your child to use play as a way to learn and grow.  Rigamajig's, hands-on, free play approach is designed to unleash a child's natural curiosity, imagination, and problem solving, helping them build the physical, intellectual, and social emotional skills they need in today’s world. With the help of educators we have developed a number of fun filled suggestions on how you can use the Rigamajig and support learning through play.

– STE(A)M –
STE(A)M goals are built into the design and use of Rigamajig. By adding ART to STEM learning, each of the disciplines benefit from a creative approach and the advantages of an art process. Multiple iterations, thinking 3-dimensionally, visualizing ideas, and critical making are a few of the methods art brings.

SKILLS / ATTRIBUTES

– EMPOWERMENT –
Rigamajig puts the power in the hands of the child. We know that through hands-on experiences children develop the physical, emotional, and intellectual skills necessary to engage their world with confidence.

– INVENTION –
Exercising the imagination is not only exciting but has been linked to empathy and compassion. Since Rigamajig has no right or wrong answers, children imagine what to make, and figure out how to make it; Invention 101!  

– COLLABORAITON –
Rigamajig motivates playful, cooperative learning. Children make friends and share resources; “Trade you this pulley for that canvas!”, “Wanna help me make a fort?” ‚”Is that a giraffe?” and “Hey, will you hold this while I connect it?” are common greetings between children. And then, when playtime is over, they either take their Rigamajig contraption apart, or leave it for other children to re-imagine.
