Addressing the challenges of an ever-changing education landscape, Mediaplanet today announces the launch of this December edition of “Future of Education.” This campaign advocates for the importance of storytelling, imagination, and play as educational tools, especially for careers in STEM. In this new campaign, Makedo is sharing all the creative ways anyone can use to incorporate play into a child's learning curriculum.

Though STEM seems daunting for a beginning learner, play, a key component in STEM learning, remains one of the greatest motivators for learning. When bolstered by designing, crafting, and building, "even the simplest cardboard box can bring a child's imaginary stories to life," said Dr. Rebecca Lewis, education consultant and play expert at Makedo.

"Teaching today’s 21st century thinking skills and creativity, including solving problems with STEM knowledge, is essential for a child’s future success," said Lewis. Using the concept of play, teachers, parents, and children can use everyday household objects and Makedo's growing list of helpful tools to encourage creativity and problem-solving skills.
