This is our second round trying out KiwiCo boxes for STEM enrinchment.
Now he is 8 1/2 years old, so we decided to go with a subscription box that has more advanced projects focused in his passions, and he totally loved it!. We went with Tinker Crate: A Laboratory for Hands-on STEM Projects for ages 9-16+
The box comes with everything you need to build the project, including the circuits and batteries (please make sure to remove the battery plastic wrap, we didn’t noticed it at first and thought the battery was dead 😅)

We had lots of fun building this project, and now that summer is starting without not many (for us is none) summer camp options, is really nice to know that you can still support and enrich your child’s creativity and their learning process without having to dig around for ideas and materials.
