Groovy Lab in a Box is an award-winning educational kit for children ages 8 and up that teaches children about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. I gush about Groovy Lab in a Box all the time, both on social media and on this site. You can read some of my previous gushes here and here and here.
Full disclosure: I always say I should write more posts about the fun we have when Groovy Lab in a Box arrives at our door, but the problem is that I get so immersed in the kits that I forget to take photos. I kid you not! These kits are fun for the entire family.
Each Groovy Lab in a Box kit comes with an engineering challenge and all the materials needed to complete the project, including a lab notebook where kids can read about the task and related STEM topic and record their findings.
Our family has tried a number of subscription services over the years and Groovy Lab in a Box is amazing. I kid you not: I hide it when it arrives. Why? Because everyone wants to stop everything and start immediately… self-included!
Did you know that Groovy Lab in a Box just got better?
Things Just Got Groovier:
Groovy Lab in a Box Has Partnered with Popular Mechanics!
Can you even?!
The first Popular Mechanics box to launch is called What’s the Matter. It is a project about the scientific properties of ice. Featured in the June issue of Popular Mechanics, this box is available for purchase through the Groovy Lab in a Box site!
What’s the Matter?
The What’s the Matter kit guides children through an investigation of the states of matter and teaches them about the properties of ice. It is a perfect fun summer learning opportunity for the whole family. Believe me, parents, you are going to want to join in the fun! Groovy Lab in a Box is as much fun for me as it is for my three STEM-ists!
In this box, children are asked to design the lighting for a “groovy” ice hotel. They get to make a portable lantern out of ICE!
I love Groovy Lab in a Box because it is educational and FUN. My children learn best when the learning is hands-on and enjoyable. Our family makes memories using these boxes. We laugh and learn and have a blast together.
What did the kids think?
What’s the Matter was such a fun summer experience for our family! My children learned about the states of matter through hands-on experiments… and had fun in the process!
The ice lantern might be our favorite Groovy Lab in the Box challenge to date… and there have been many!
