Play and Learn by Decoding Beautiful Life Patterns
Beautiful Discovery kits use visually and kinesthetically engaging patterns of nature to unleash your hidden pattern power. Discover, deCODE, and model beautiful patterns with art, eco-games, origami, drag and drop code, and natural treasures. Learn coding, art, math, science and modeling in an integrated, visual, adventurous, and beautiful way.
  • A monthly kit of adventures exploring beautiful patterns of life, from the perspectives of all STEAM subjects
  • Our eco-games, code, origami and art simulate spirals, stripes, flocks and other patterns in biology, ecology, or behavior. See the patterns also in natural wonders, such as real pine cones, shells, minerals, leaves, all included in the boxes
  • Learn coding with life pattern games in colorful cardboard and code versions. Play the cardboard games, then see the game rules coded to model real life patterns
  • Each box comes with a lesson for an adult or teen alone, or for a preteen with adult guidance. Each box works as standalone lesson that integrates all items for that month. Yet the lessons also progressively build STEAM skills across the monthly boxes in an optional course that comes as a bonus with any ongoing subscription
  • Like a forest walk or a museum visit, Beautiful Discovery is accessible to all, yet endlessly stimulating the deeper one goes. While it includes easy access science-oriented games, drag-and drop Scratch coding, stories and art activities for preteens to enjoy, it also includes fascinating lessons for adults or teens

Questions

Q: What age group Is best suited for this box?Asked by Von K., July 2019

Beautiful Discovery answered...July 2019

To appeal to all ages, we carefully selected visually beautiful patterns
that have scientific, mathematical, and artistic significance. We include
games, models, art, and natural wonders that reflect those patterns and
make them tangible. While the boxes include easy access science-oriented
games, drag-and drop Scratch coding, stories and art activities for
preteens to enjoy, it also includes fascinating lessons for adults or
teens. Each box comes with a lesson for an adult or teen alone, or for a
preteen with adult guidance. So we believe two groups will benefit the
most: 1) preteens working with an enthusiastic adult, 2) teenage or adult
science geeks working alone. Thanks for your interest and your question!
