We’re in the midst of summer, and chances are, you’re either planning back to school, or your child may have even had their first day already (hello Indiana and Arizona, did I miss anyone?) Here’s the thing, having STEM fun can be done inside of school, but the curriculum often doesn’t offer as much hands on science in elementary school as many would like. And, as our homeschooling friends know, sometimes finding ways to incorporate learning and fun is worth while. For that reason, doing STEM at home is important and fun!

In partnership with Popular Mechanics, Groovy Lab in a Box, deliver their STEM-themed box straight to your door filled with investigation activities and a design challenge that are fun and hands-on. The investigation activities culminate into an Engineering Design Challenge, where your STEMists (your kids) must apply what they’ve learned from the investigation activities (and use their critical thinking skills) to complete the design challenge. The boxes contain everything you need to complete all of the activities, including a groovy retro-themed lab notebook. The box is supplemented with their Beyond…in a Box web portal where your children will find groovy videos, interactives, a STEM library, extension activities and much much more.
