#GiftSmart with Radio Shack and Some Great STEM Toys

P1190707.jpg

I have always thought of Radio Shack as the place to go for random electrical parts, and the occasional gadget. It was never the place I thought to go for my Christmas shopping. So when I got the invite to “Gift Smart” with Radio Shack, I was intrigued. It turns out that Radio Shack has...…[more]
