Q: Can you explain the difference between the two box options?Asked by Maria C., February 2020
Thanks for asking! The two products are both based on the same Arduino
technology but the robox subscription builds a robot, and then adds on to
it each month. The intro to engineering box makes a series of different
machines, like an alarm, a nightlight, and a stopwatch. Both include
downloadable instructions, coding instruction, and video tutorials The
intro to engineering is generally easier to build, especially early on.
We hope this helps!
Q: Is this box something two children could share, or would you need to order two boxes?Asked by Brianna L., January 2020
All our kits are designed to be taken apart and used over again, so that two children could use it. That said it might be worth it for them each to have their own microcontroller, which comes in the first kit. If you wanted to buy an extra month 1, we could create a coupon to get you 20% off that.

Awesome box! Great content, such a cool idea for a subscription box. Excellent customer service, and fast shipping.
Missing items frequently. The community help website no longer works. Project instructions are outdated and very often incorrect. Arrives on time though.
We're sorry to hear about your dissatisfaction with our product. The MakeCrate team is very quick to respond to customers that are in need of missing parts or that have questions about our instructions. We see that you've been a subscriber with us for over 9 months without any such reports, so we are gravely concerned that you feel so dissatisfied.
My daughter enjoys coding and building but said this box didn't come with directions that matched the contents. She wasn't able to complete the project due to missing components and instructions.
