Creation Crate is a monthly subscription box that is designed with STEM in mind, as well as, just education in general. The twist is that they not only want to fulfill STEM goals for learners, but they want to promote practical skills that will make subscribers competitive in the ever-advancing technological world.
Think of it this way: A child gets an entire year of Creation Crates (one per month) and has more real life experience with programming than 99% of college level computer students. That’s incredible! The mission of Creation Crate is to make people of any age competitive in the job force to combat the fear that unemployment may continue to grow in the future thanks to automation.
You can subscribe to a single month of Creation Crate, but the real investment is an entire 12 months of crates each with a different project to build and a way to start your own makerspace.
Each month’s themes that also include specific objectives and outcomes can be found below:
Month 1: Mood Lamp
Month 2: Memory Game
Month 3: Distance Detector
Month 4: LED Dice Game
Month 5: Optical Theremin
Month 6: 2-Player Reflex Game
Month 7: Weather Station
Month 8: Audio Visualizer
Month 9: Lock Box
Month 10: Digital Multimeter
Month 11: Handheld Balance Game
Month 12: Strength Gauge
An entire year of Creation Crate gives you experience with 40+ individual concepts in technology. You’ll gain hands on experience with electronics and programming projects that are designed specifically for people who have no experience with these materials. That alone makes this a great STEM tool for teachers and parents to use to supplement interests and education.
Creation Crate subscribers are able to earn maker rewards for completing their crates, retain the knowledge they’ve learned longer, and get started making their own creations when they combine monthly crates. The options are endless with the Creation Crate curriculum – a fantastic STEM resource and gift idea.
