Spatial skills, the ability to encode, remember, and mentally manipulate the spatial features and relations of objects or space, are central to our daily functioning. They allow us to recall the location of car keys, navigate a route to work, and provide directions to the nearest restaurant or café. Spatial skills also are pivotal for academic achievement (e.g., Delgado & Prieto, 2004; Newcombe & Frick, 2010). They predict later math competence (e.g., Lauer & Lourenco, 2016; Mix et al., 2013, 2016; Verdine et al., 2014; Wang et al., 2021) and entry into the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields (e.g., Wai et al., 2009). Proficiency in visuospatial ability has long been associated with success in cognitively demanding educational tracks and occupations such as engineering, architecture, physics, chemistry, and surgery (e.g., Snow & Yalow, 1982; Sorby, 2001, 2009; Sorby & Baartmans, 2000) and is a salient characteristic of physical scientists (Gohm et al., 1998; Humphreys et al., 1993).
