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.
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.
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!
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!
Investigate static electricity, the atom, paper circuits, switches, a groovy door alarm to keep any trespassers and much, much more!
Investigate sound, pitch, vibration, sound waves, and much, much more. Can you design and build a new musical instrument?
Investigate Roller Coaster Science, Centripetal Force, and Inclined Planes. Build a Paper Roller Coaster that you engineer and design.
