Did not interest my kids.
My grandson loves these projects. Great way to spend time together.
I gave a box to my niece as part of her Christmas gift. She had a great time following the directions and creating. We even made one kit over Skype together. Thanks!
Thank you for purchasing a STEM Discovery Boxes subscription! That is awesome that you and your niece built a project together over skype. Thank you for your review!
My oldest daughter impatiently waits for her box every month. Absolutely love this subscription
Thank you so much for your review! We love hearing that your daughter looks forward to her box every month!
We ordered these for our 7 year old son and he loves them.
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy that your son loves his STEM Discovery Boxes!
Both my grandkids work together on the activities. They love them and look forward to them each month.
Thank you so much for your review! We're so happy your grandkids love their STEM Discovery Boxes!
Some of the instructions could be clearer but it gave her a challenge. Thanks!
Thank you so much for your review. We are so happy to hear that your little STEMist enjoys the projects and experiments! We strive to provide a range of ability levels to offer activities that kids can do on their own as well as activities that adult and child can do together (kids love that type of quality time) - it's also also great for kids who enjoy doing a more challenging project on their own. We will definitely take note to your suggestion about offering more detailed instructions. We love hearing customer feedback that helps us constantly improve our product. Thank you again for taking the time to review your STEM Discovery Boxes!
5 yr. old grandson loves these. 7 yr old granddaughter, not so much.
Thank you for your feedback. We greatly appreciate it!
Daughter loves opening the box. She wanted to do projects right away. It was already bedtime.
We are so happy to hear that! Thank you for your feedback. We greatly appreciate it! Please let us know if you ever need assistance with anything, we're always here to help!
My husband and I are both college graduates and he is a science nerd. Yet, we could not get some of the projects to work at all, or as expected. The directions are not always clear or detailed enough. It needs a longer format for instructions than the card to guarantee success.
We bought the Discovery Boxes as part of our science curriculum for our grand daughter who is 7. We are pandemic homeschooling. She is at the young end of the scale for this product, but since she would be doing this all with an adult, we thought the level would be acceptable. Many of the projects are not only above what she can even help with, they are also above her understand of scientific principals.
The concept is great. However, I would caution parents interested to buy in at levels where their child is in the medium to high age range suggested for the kit. I would also recommend that one adult be 'science inclined'. We kept our subscription for the school year and picked the projects we wanted to do.
My nephew loved this
That is so wonderful to hear! We hope your nephews continues to expand his love of STEM while exploring our projects and experiments! Hope you and your family have a wonderful and safe 2021!
Granddaughter thrilled to receive. Some projects did not assemble easily.
I'm so sorry you felt that some of the projects were not easy to assemble. We purposely include a variety of ability levels in our boxes. We do this so that there are projects that even very young children can do completely on their own (giving them the feeling of independence and satisfaction in completing it independently) as well as projects that the child can do WITH an adult. We find that it's very important for an adult to be involved in the child's education. Participating with the child is not only fun for them, but also shows them that you value what they are doing. An adults presence can communicate a lot to them about the importance of the project they are involved in....
What a great box! My 10 year old loved it.
Thank you so much! We love hearing feedback from our customers and appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. It is so wonderful to hear that your son loves his STEM Discovery Box!
Not something I will renew/purchase as a gift again. There are definitely better boxes out there and I feel this one fell short.
I'm so sorry you feel that way. We have thousands of happy subscribers who love our boxes. We wish you the best in finding the right box for your child.
My son's box was missing an important piece to the air pressure car. As a result, he was unable to complete the project. He enjoyed the other two projects: Jelly marbles and Swinging Electromagnetic.
I'm so sorry your project was missing a piece. We strive for superior quality projects, but occasionally human error is bound to occur (happens to the best of us). Each STEM Discovery Box includes our contact information along with our SATISFACTION GUARANTEE. We went ahead and shipped you a new Pressure Powered Car so that your son can complete this awesome project. We apologize again for the missing piece, but please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you ever have a problem with your STEM Discovery Box. Thank you!
This was a first time we ordered the Stem Discovery Box. It was fun and educational. I really liked that there were 3 different projects in one box. 1 of the projects even had enough supplies to make extra bouncy balls. I think it's a great value! My husband and son have enjoyed working on it together. I'm looking forward to the next box.
Thank you so much for your review! We greatly appreciate it!
Definitely kid tested and approved. We got this for our grandkids. My granddaughter is a S.T.E.M student so this was right up her alley. They had the best time with kit! They can’t wait until the next one comes!!
Thank you so much!
The box was received quickly (~3 days after ordering). I have 2 boys, 9 & 12 yrs old, and they both loved it. Our box contained 3 activities, (1) making glow-in-the-dark bouncy balls, (2) a balance robot, and (3) VR goggle kit. The bouncy balls were the biggest hit, we made 3 of them the first day (and lost 1 of those already, so I'm glad we could make multiples). My 9 year old really enjoyed the VR goggles, they gave app suggestions to download and he loved the zoo safari. My 12 yr old hogged the balance robot. They've both been bugging me about when the next box is coming, so I'm calling this a hit! The instructions were easy to follow, and simple/short enough to keep them engaged.
I love hearing about how your little STEMists are enjoying their STEM Discovery Boxes! Thank you for your kind review.

I'm so sorry that your package is taking longer than usual. Shipping to Australia from the US takes longer than shipping within the US.
It took around 11 days for my first box to be delivered.
I will give the rating on quality once I see it. I sent it as a gift to someone in the family. I will order one more if the kids liked it.
