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!

Dear Chris & Kathy,
I wanted to let you know how much my 10 yr. old granddaughter is enjoying her Discovery Box! It was a Birthday present. After looking through the contents, she immediately started to organize the items. She made folders & labeled them and put the pictures in; she labeled boxes for shells and other items and she also made a T-chart to record her observations. She is enjoying it immensely! She was so excited to learn that she will be receiving another "NEW" Beautiful Discovery box next month! Thank you both; you've done a wonderful job!

I got the box as something for my niece and I to do together. We loved all of the lil things that came in the box. And we learned a lot to. It's a great way to introduce science, games, nature and art into a kids life, as well as, for us adults. Fun for all ages.

This is a really cool box. If you're someone like me who often has trouble grasping mathematical concepts as they are often taught in classrooms, then the contents of this box may help you or your student. It presents math concepts in ways that are concrete and hands-on. Everything inside is beautiful, too!
