What's included?

  • With Groovy Lab in a Box, young STEMists (your children!) will receive fun, hands-on projects and an engineering design challenge – all focused on a particular STEM topic.
  • All STEMists will receive a Lab Notebook, where they can read about that month’s topic, perform investigation activities and document their findings. They will investigate, brainstorm, plan, build, test and redesign their own creations.  Materials for investigations are included.
  • STEMists also receive access to our special “Beyond…in a Box” online learning portal. This is a unique feature of Groovy Lab in a Box because it gives STEMists a deeper understanding of that month’s topic. “Beyond…in a Box” has videos and more interactive activities to supplement what they are learning from the box projects, which also helps the STEMist even more when completing the design challenge.
  • While the investigation activities have step-by-step directions, STEMists won’t have detailed directions to complete the Engineering Design Challenge. Instead, they must rely on their critical thinking skills, and what they’ve learned through the investigation process from the Lab Notebook and online activities. The Engineering Design Challenge is the culmination of your STEMist’s learning experience – the ultimate project where he/she must apply the knowledge gained from that month’s activities.


Science learning made fun!

    We were learning about airplanes and flying before my children's first experience. These experiments got everyone involved and having fun. While they were having fun they accidentally learned so much! Everything needed was included so that I didn't have to search for equipment or skip projects because we didn't have the tools. The book is also set up nicely so that the 6-year-old, 8-year-old, and husband could follow along and participate. Well done. Thank you!
