Stem Subscription Boxes

I am thinking about buying a subscription to one of those monthly stem project boxes for my grandchildren ages almost 8 and 10 years old. The older boy is very interested in engineering and science. Their parents are good at doing projects and activities with the children. Does anyone have any experiences with these boxes or what company I should I should order from?

I have been sending a STEM subscription kit every other month for 2 years now to my niece’s boys. They have been appreciated and utilized. They are homeschooled, ages 6 and 7.

I did KiwiCo for my grandson and he loved it! They have different boxes designed for each age group. Most of the ones he could do with very little help. He created some really cool things!

I bought Kiwico for my 13 yo grandson. He enjoys them and can do them independently. Today he showed me a lava lamp he built!

Tinker Crate from Kiwi Crate

It was a huge hit for my grandson who likes to build. He also loves engineering. At first, he needed assistance but quickly became independent. The projects are really interesting. He enjoyed them but then started making a parts drawer and morphing projects together. Very worth it! I also experimented with the Amazon crates, which were a STEM project or toy each month. I felt it was a good deal, but the Kiwi Tinker Crate was a perfect fit for us.

Another vote for Kiwi. My 3 year old GS received a years subscription for Christmas. Age appropriate and really fun.

I've been involved in using them from ages 2-15. They're really good. Search for a coupon code!! There's always something out there.
