STEM Kids Teacher School Classroom Nominations Open + Exclusive MBE Robot Giveaway


MBE partnered with Learning Resources for this post

MBE's Botley the Coding Robot Giveaway Below

As mom to triplets plus one more -- two boys, two girls all born within a year -- who is extremely passionate about exposing young children to STEM and coding, I could not be more thrilled to be joining forces with Learning Resources. With National Robotics Week April 7-15th, I can't think of a better post to be publishing today.

Sign the STEM Pledge, Nominate A School to Win

MBE's goal is to share this educational toy company's exciting new partnership with Danielle and Adam Busby, parents of America's only all-female quintuplets (best known for their appearance on TLC's hit reality series Outdaughtered)

In their role as ambassadors for the brand, the Busbys are inviting moms and dads across the U.S. to join them to sign the STEM pledge, as well to support equal opportunities for all students in science, technology, engineering and math and to nominate your child's school or teacher to receive STEM products. I just took the pledge myself today, won't you join me?

Parents who sign the pledge will also be given the opportunity to nominate a school or teacher, FIVE of which will be selected to each receive $500 worth of Learning Resources STEM products for their classrooms. 

Botley the Coding Robot Review + MBE Giveaway

Among the newest cool STEM-inspired toys released this year and now available from Learning Resources is the Botley the Coding Robot Activity Set ($79.99), which is a personal favorite of Blayke Busby.  

This programmable robot 77-piece STEM activity set is ideal for teaching little ones as young as five years old basic coding skills in a fun and engaging way. Botley's advanced features make it possible for kids to explore coding with this unique robot which can detect objects in its path, be programmed for if/then logic, follow looping commands, and can navigate an obstacle course. The best part: this toy does NOT require the use of a smartphone or tablet, providing 100% screen-free early educational play for girls and boys.

Here's how Botley works...

Thanks to Learning Resources, exclusively for our readers, we are giving away a Botley the Coding Robot over on Mommy Blog Expert's Instagram page to one lucky family to learn and play with at home.
