Bad Video and audio quality

by Irene G., 4 days ago

We tried to follow the video but it was very tough to understand. 1st the audio fade in and out and even at the highest setting it was not loud enough. 2nd the filming angle is always from Top down with no zoom in for close up at important intervals. Moreover, the narrator's hand is always blocking what he is demonstrating. My kid got so frustrated and just eventually gave up. I'm now struggling on my own to trouble shoot the creation. A pity as the concept of the crates is good but just lack professional editing, videography skills.

Never received third box...

by Michael G., Apr 15, 2019

I ordered 3 month gift for my son at Christmas...
Received first 2 boxes... third box is a mystery... Contacted customer service and they told there was a problem with the 3rd box... that was 2 months ago... they promised to send a box soon... Never received any communication from them. Always need to ask them what is going instead of them being forthcoming and explaining to their customers what is going on.
Never ordering from Creation Crate again. Save your money there are better tech boxes.

Great for my Library Tech Program

by George S., Apr 10, 2019

I am a teen library and my (teen) patrons love tech. I wanted something that could challenge several different skill levels and Creation Crate was the answer. My advanced students can write code and my beginners can create circuits.

Pretty cool!

by Benjamin S., Mar 16, 2019

I loved the opportunity to mess around with the given code and see if I can get it to do different things. I’m currently working on a different way to code the program because the original I was given I didn’t quite understand. I also tried to code the buzzer to play different tones but it appears the buzzer is made to only operate at a certain frequency (my father is thinking about getting me a speaker to hook up to it- he works with arduinos a lot at his job)

Awesome Concept

by James H., Feb 20, 2019

Back in the 80s, when I was in High School, I was very adept at programming in BASIC, and was able to work with a couple of other languages of that era as well. Needless to say I had a strong interest in engineering and programming. Life took me in a different direction though. Lately I've been interested in getting back into programming, but was kind of at a loss of where to start, not being familiar with the languages in use today. I've read a few books, and have worked a bit on simple coding but I really wanted something more hands on to get me launched.

When I came across Creation Crate I was ecstatic - it is just the thing I have been looking for - hands on projects and coding using C! I've just finished the first project - a Mood Lamp and I am overjoyed, The project is not overly complicated, but it is challenging enough to keep you on your toes! As I read, the crates become progressively more challenging, so I'm looking forward to the coming months! In the meantime I am very motivated to work with C and the Arduino independently until the next crate arrives! I've even ordered a second Arduino unit to use so that the one I received from CC is dedicated to Creation Crate.

In short, I am very pleased with both the crate and the company - their communication with clients and documentation included with the crate...

Loved the first project...can't wait for

by Claudia L., Jan 02, 2019

I really enjoyed putting the Mood Lamp project together. I only had minor glitches with my programming, total learning curve things, and a few of the wires easily pulling out of their slots. Once I got those kinks worked out, the Mood Lamp worked perfectly every time it was used!!
