It doesn’t matter whether you need to get a birthday gift for a 9 year old girl who loves One Direction or one who plans to go to Mars. Either way, a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) gift should be on the top of your list. If she’s already studying for astronaut camp then she’ll absolutely love it. If not, these gifts are so cool she won’t even know she’s learning science! Who knows what she’ll achieve?
STEM Birthday Gifts for a 9 Year Old Girl
Microscope and Activity Journal
Designed by a kickass female scientist, this microscope is a real science tool. Girls will enjoy using the microscope and trying out the experiments featured in the cute keepsake journal that comes with it.
This classic game is sneakily scientific! Not only is it super fun to get creative with the different runs and watch the marble drop, it’s basically engineering!

Dot Robotics Kit
Dot is probably the world’s cutest robot but she’s not just a pretty face! It’s an amazing gift that teaches it’s owner how to code in a really fun way. It comes with adventures and challenges to complete that turn Dot into anything from an alarm clock to fortune teller. I want one!

This beautifully designed chemistry lab is specifically designed to boost science confidence in girls. How great is that? It gives them everything they need to safely conduct cool chemistry experiments right at home in their kitchen.
An educational version of Bop It! This is a great gift for girls who love maths (and a sneaky way to get those who don’t like it to practice.)
