Geomag Glow - Unlock Spooky STEM Fun This Halloween
Every year, come autumn, we go on the lookout for the funkiest, most exciting Halloween decorations, only to throw them out come November. But this year, why not invest in something that will light up your Halloween party and continue being fun once Halloween is over? We’re talking about the Geomag Glow construction sets. Suitable for all ages above 3, the Geomag Glow sets are not only a great decoration and conversation starter for your Halloween party but also an important opportunity to gain a better grasp on the world of physics and magnetics.
Geomag Glow consists of three sets of different sizes of glow-in-the-dark natural magnetic rods. These rods can be arranged in any shape or structure that lights the imagination. Because of their lightweight design and flexible nature, you can put your Geomag set anywhere in the room. If you like, you can even arrange them into something spooky, and exciting like a ghost, a skull, or even a zombie. The sky, or rather your imagination, is the limit here.
How do Geomag Glow sets work?
So, how are these magnetic rods powered, and why do they glow in the dark? Well, that's both educational and exciting about the Geomag Glow sets is that they are made from 100% recycled materials, that are also 100% natural. As such, they work by capturing the natural light of the sun throughout the day and then using that to light up in the dark.
Because Geomag Glow sets use solar power to function, they will not drive up your electricity bills. For the same reason, Geomag sets are also great news for the environment. If you’re concerned with reducing your carbon footprint, Geomag proves you can have a fun and exciting party without damaging the environment.
Since Geomag sets are solar-powered, it’s best to leave them out in a well-lit spot during the day so that they can capture enough sunlight to last through your party.
Kids parties or adults? Why not both?
Because it’s marketed for all ages, sometimes people will assume Geomag sets are a toy, and as such, ideal for children. However, the truth is more versatile and complex than that. Geomag Glow harnesses solar power to allow you to unleash your imagination, and create glow-in-the-dark constructions, after your craziest, most fun ideas.
As such, they can’t be aimed solely at children, or adults, because there is no singular age where imagination stops.
Geomag Glow is suitable not only for children but also for adults. Both children and grown-ups can learn a great deal from these fun construction sets. For children, Geomag sets serve as a great introduction to the STEM program (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Since the Geomag Glow sets use natural power, they can also be used by parents or educators to teach children about their environment, green sources of power, and all these other subjects that have become so pressing in our modern world.
And perhaps adults could use a lesson in that, as well.
Spooky Geomag Halloween
What makes the Geomag Glow sets great as a Halloween party decoration (or even a Halloween gift, for some) is the eerie green light that emanates from the magnetic pieces. This helps design a monochrome construction that looks like something out of Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory.
And while the color itself is not so overpowering that it would be inappropriate through the rest of the year, it’s just green and icky enough to look like it belongs at a Halloween party. Or as a Halloween gift.
For parents, this is an excellent way to get their children excited about basic STEM principles without it looking like they’re giving them a “school” gift. Because no kid is going to want a toy that makes them learn. They’re going to want a toy that’s fun, and weird, and kind of looks like it was made from an eerie green gloop. Luckily, the Geomag Glow sets can do both, which makes them the ideal Halloween gift for your child.
What are the choices?
Geomag Glow sets come in three different options, differentiated by their complexity and number of pieces. First, you’ve got the basic Geomag Glow 25, then the slightly more complex Geomag Glow 42, and lastly, the Geomag Glow 60.
If this is your or your child’s first time with a Geomag set, the 25 might be a good place to start and get a grasp of basic STEM concepts, without being too challenging. If you’re more experienced or want to craft a complex Halloween decoration from them, then Geomag Glow 60 may be more appropriate for you. Each set can be joined together with other Glows or even other Geomag sets.
Whichever you choose, you can’t go wrong with Geomag Glow this Halloween!
