Groovy Lab in a Box
This monthly box in the mail thing is all the rage. You can get food, toys, makeup, clothes, jewelry, things for a mama's not so fun time of the month, and now Science experiments. These subscriptions vary greatly in price but there is about something for everyone. 

My kids love to get stuff in the mail, and love anything that has to do with Science experiments. We occasionally search Pinterest and find lots to do from there.

But now, I have the option to get a box hand delivered by my favorite mail person straight to my door. It takes all the legwork out of searching for an experiment, gathering what we need - running back to the store because I forgot something - and then getting the kids all ready to do it again. 
Groovy Lab in a Box has done all that for me....or you! And is offering my readers 20% off their first months subscription with code: 


Here's what the Groovy Lab people have to say about themselves:
Each month through our Groovy Lab in a Box subscription service, young STEMists (your children!) will receive fun, hands-on projects and an engineering design challenge – all focused on that month’s STEM topic.All STEMists will receive a Lab Notebook, where they can read about that month’s topic, perform investigation activities and document their findings. They will investigate, brainstorm, plan, build, test and redesign their own creations.

STEMists also receive access to our special “Beyond…in a Box” online learning portal. This is a unique feature of Groovy Lab in a Box because it gives STEMists a deeper understanding of that month’s topic. “Beyond…in a Box” has videos and more interactive activities to supplement what they are learning from the box projects, which also helps the STEMist even more when completing the design challenge. Additionally, the monthly box contains bonus supplies exclusively for the activities available through “Beyond…in a Box.”

While the investigation activities have step-by-step directions, STEMists won’t have detailed directions to complete the Engineering Design Challenge. Instead, they must rely on their critical thinking skills, and what they’ve learned through the investigation process from the Lab Notebook and online activities. The Engineering Design Challenge is the culmination of your STEMist’s learning experience – the ultimate project where he/she must apply the knowledge gained from that month’s activities.

Science learning made fun!
