Having been diagnosed with dyslexia in 2021, 11-year-old Ava N. Simmons knows a lot about embracing adaptive learning and using it as a superpower. Recently, this incredible young student, via her Team Genius Squad company, has launched a new toy line, the Alternative Energy Experiment Kit series, which will be available in Whole Foods Market stores.
The Alternative Energy Experiment Kit series, will offer engaging science, technology, engineering, and math, (S.T.E.M.) learning opportunities for all young minds.
“To be able to visit one of my favorite retail stores and see S.T.E.M. toys I developed on the shelf is a dream come true. We are so excited to work with Whole Foods Market and make our S.T.E.M. Toys accessible to more families across the country,” Ava N. Simmons, the creator of Team Genius Squad said.
“I used S.T.E.M. to help me build my confidence and to overcome my learning challenges. I want to share my story and encourage other children to believe in themselves, focus on their strengths that make them unique, and remember never to let their challenges define their success or future.”
And of course, Whole Foods Market is excited to not only feature the Alternative Energy Experiment Kit series in their stores, the subsidiary of Amazon, is also excited to support Ava’s overall S.T.E.M. initiatives.
“Whole Foods Market is thrilled to join forces with Ava and Team Genius Squad, bringing their innovative S.T.E.M. toy line to our stores,” Casey Gaston, Executive Leader of Local and Emerging Brands for Whole Foods Market said about the partnership. “We share Ava’s commitment to offering enriching products that inspire learning, curiosity, and exploration.”
Ava, who is also known “Ava the S.T.E.M. Princess®” and “Ava the S.T.E.M. Ambassador™,”has also authored three books which also focus on S.T.E.M. topics and experiments.
