Ryman Stationery Science and Adventure

Presents which inspire children to take an interest in our natural world is a fantastic way not only to educate, but also to excite young minds

The earth which we inhabit provides an astonishing plethora of wonder, awe and curiosity. Science and adventure go hand-in-hand and fascination in the natural world is often favoured by our younger generation. Natural curiosities found amongst children means fuelling their desires can often lead to a discovery of talent and passion in subjects such as geography, astronomy or engineering.

The giving and receiving of gifts can often be a huge source of inspiration and encouragement, especially for our younger generation. Presents which excite the imagination can be starter kits for future careers waiting to be forged. And it seems that interest in the scientific and natural world is ever increasing. According to a study undertaken in May 2018, the largest increase in GSCE entries since the previous year were seen in separate science subjects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics, whilst Geography saw an increase of over 10,000 entries from that of 2017*.

Presents which inspire children to take an interest in our natural world is a fantastic way not only to educate, but also to excite young minds. Letting them play, make and investigate is a wonderful way to encourage youngsters to discover more and think big. Perhaps they dream of travelling to space, discovering a new plant or animal species or inventing a world-changing piece of equipment. Whatever their aspirations, high street retailer Ryman Stationery offer a huge range of scientific gifts to allow your child to explore and create this Christmas. Who knows where it might lead or how high they might soar.
