Q: How much supervision is required? Would like to send as a gift to give mom some alone time (but if she'll need to be around, this might not be a good fit).Asked by Jessica S., January 2021
Q: I can only see a monthly subscription available as options. Is that true? It seems like a longer subscription of other boxes lead to a lower price. Asked by Maureen L., December 2020
Q: I have 3 children. Would I be able to use one box for all 3 children or would I have to order three subscriptions ?Asked by Mary H., July 2020
Hi Mary, I apologize that we haven't gotten back to you sooner. I just saw that we have this questions feature as part of Cratejoy. Yes, 1 box would work for all 3 children. We promote STEM teams and 1 box would work for up to 4 children. There is more about STEM Teams and the roles in a STEM team in our Beyond in a Box.
Please let us know if you have further questions and again, I apologize for not responding sooner.

Had some trouble with shipping but was dealt with quickly. Lots of fun!
I never received this item 😫 we had a big snowstorm and I was afraid it was under there, but the snow is melting now and it’s not here
I am very impressed with how well the box is organized and the mountain of support for the design challenges. They include everything needed to complete the box with nothing prefabricated so I am able to recreate at a later time. Definitely our favorite science box and we've tried them all.
As a homeschooling mom of 5, I am always looking for educational activities for my children. This was educational, fun, and inspiring. My kids loved it!
My son is so excited to get his box each month. This month he immediately opened it up to see what was inside. My son loves the experiments and it's great that he can do them himself. The It's Electric box is very impressive. He loved making the different types of circuits as well as seeing what he could stick the balloon too. These boxes are unlike other subscription boxes we have had because the lab notebook explains the design process with an engineering design challenge every month to invent something new. My son created the coolest dance pad with lights and sound. Fantastic!
My 9 year old really enjoyed his box and learning along with me. We had fun experimenting together!
I placed an order a little later than I expected. The customer service was very good and deliveries arrived in time. I absolutely love these boxes! I bought for my friends boys for Christmas too! Thank you for such an amazing product.
