My son, age 12, and I enjoyed completing the first project in the Creation Crates curriculum. We found the contents of the box to be well packaged and organized, and the reference materials and instruction clear. We found as well that the additional supports available online were easy to access and helpful in modeling troubleshooting tasks, etc. Working together, we found we had a functional shaded mood lamp in about 45 minutes, with the physical assembly equaling about half that time and the programming taking the other. This was a very fun project with minimal frustration and we eagerly await our second box in February!
