Q: What exactly is the difference between the original crate & the upgraded crate?Asked by Sarahbeth R., August 2019

The Original projects are a little easier and less complicated to build. These projects contain all of the components needed to build the project and access to the Online Classroom. The person who chooses this curriculum is usually a parent buying for a middle to high school student or a curious adult who is just getting started.

The Upgraded projects use the box as part of the project. They are a little more advanced and there are more...

Thought there were only video instructions, but found the instructions in text, which is much better. Looks great, the arduino included is really good. Looking forward to building this!

Hi Betsy, glad I was able to talk with you today. The first lesson has a number of background videos about the components in the box to help provide a foundation. You can skip those if you want to start building right away. The rest of the build instructions in the Online Classroom are set up to cater to multiple learning styles. Every lesson has step-by-step instructions with text, pictures, graphics, and web links.

Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you are having any trouble at all. We want to make sure that this is as fun and interesting as it is educational.

Sincerely,
David
Co-Founder, Project & Curriculum Development

I ordered 3 month gift for my son at Christmas...
Received first 2 boxes... third box arrived very late. I was contacted by Creation Crate and was explained the situation regarding the late delivery. I appreciate that Creation Crate reached out to me to explain and I feel better about my purchase as they are taking measures to improve their customer service.
The projects themselves are a great learning experience.

Mr. Michael,

We are very sorry for the delayed shipment and especially the lack of timely communication from us. We have worked hard to sort out this issue and are in the process of shipping out the delayed projects as soon as possible. We have done two main things to ensure that this does not happen again:
1- We have implemented a process to ensure that the purchase orders we submit are more clear and another process to check each part before it leaves the factory.
2- We have a process to trigger a message that will go out to customers at a specified time if we encounter an issue, with subsequent messages to keep you informed if we encounter a prolonged delay.

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.

Awesome Concept

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...

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!!

I love how the kit comes with things like a breadboard to give kids a challenge that they will feel good about when surpassing.
