ABOUT MAGFORMERS

Magformers is recognised globally as a leader in STEM toys and educational products, with learning and 3D brain development through play at its core.

Toughened ABS plastic geometric shapes like triangles, squares and rhomboids connect quickly and simply using the power of the built-in and very safe neodymium magnets. In each Magformers piece, the magnets are safely contained within all the edge surfaces. But because every magnet can rotate 360 degrees,pieces always connect when they are brought together.

Our multiple award-winning brand is at the forefront of the transition from STEM to STEAM - the intersection of Art with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

In 2018, Magformers was officially approved by STEM.org. Founded in 2001, STEM.org is the longest, continually operating STEM educational research organization in America. Through an extensive collaborative effort, STEM.org has worked closely with pedagogical researchers, a community of teachers, administrators, and schools to establish a trusted set of STEM benchmarks. The resources and proven best-practices of this community have led to the world’s first and most recognized STEM credentialing framework: STEM Accreditation™ for Programs, STEM Certification™ for People, and STEM Approved™ for Products.

Magformers magnetic construction sets can be used by pupils to help reach many KS1, KS2 and KS3 targets in line with the UK National Curriculum.

Magformers And Maths

Magformers magnetic construction sets are used effectively in the classroom to help pupils reach key attainment targets in mathematics and achieve maths mastery across the National Curriculum. In particular, our KS1/KS2 MathsClass Set and Basic Class Set offer large-scale teaching resources to help children to:


Magformers In Early Years Education

Magformers magnetic construction sets can be used for a variety of Early Years/Foundation learning purposes. The magnetic pieces encourage younger children to identify and easily make different 2D and 3D shapes, like squares, triangles, cubes and pyramids. Workbooks or cards assist the study of geometric shape recognition, colour recognition and fine motor skills development.

Magformers In Design & Technology

Award-winning Magformers magnetic construction sets can be used to deliver a number of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Design & Technology learning goals. Many Magformers sets include motors, gears, levers, pulleys, pistons and air blocks – allowing children to design and build structures, evaluate designs and use and understand mechanical systems.

Magformers can be used effectively when:
