Everyone always says that learning should be fun. But, very few people are innovative enough to make it as fun as it should be. As educators, we at Academics in a Box realize that the very answer to this dilemma lies with the very children we teach. Children want to learn even if they don’t realize it. They are natural STEMists and have an innate ability to create. Yet, due to time constraints and an overstressed education system, harnessing that innate ability in children becomes lost in the shuffle of simply trying to meet basic requirements.

Our STEM boxes aligns with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and give the next generation of STEMists their own starting point. Groovy Lab in a Box encourages children to channel their inner STEMist and provides children the opportunity to focus their imagination, determination, and innate inquisitive nature by way of a monthly hands-on STEM project using the Engineering Design Process.

By utilizing the Engineering Design Process, children are held to a variety of creative standards for their finished product. Most importantly, they are provided the opportunity to engage their imaginations, apply and develop critical thinking skills to produce their own desired outcome.

Groovy Lab in a Box is the brainchild of scientists, parents, educators, and business owners who have worked in the private sector of the science community. Our goal is to make sure every child utilizes their own inner STEMist potential to the fullest.

We hope children enjoy their monthly STEM subscriptions as much as we enjoy creating them each month.

Slide "Fun and creative projects to keep your kids engaged with STEM-type activities even after school!" -supadupa Slide "My kids love this subscription box. I love that it keeps them engaged and thinking like an engineer. There is so much to do and lasts for the entire month, plus all the materials are included so I don't have to go hunting for extra." -lovinglife Slide "Thank you!!! We have purchased 3 kits so far for my homeschooled kids. I have saved so much time and energy by having the projects written for me and the supplies gathered in one box. Kids are enjoying, mom has pressed the easy button." -Kris Mazy Slide "Groovy Lab In A Box had the most amazing STEM activities we have ever used in our school. My homeschool students, grades 3-8, found the activities fun and challenging at the same time. The students were able to take charge of their own learning and were so excited about SCIENCE! There is even a music component. I’m so glad they didn’t leave out the “arts.” -Sue Perry Slide "Groovy Lab in a Box provides a great opportunity for all children. They offer a plethora of different boxes to engage many types of learners. What a fantastic way to prove creativity." -D. Lockett Slide "The boxes contain everything you need to complete all of the activities, including a groovy retro-themed lab notebook. When I say everything, I’m not joking! One of the activities for the weather station box called for a dime and several strands of human hair. I kid you not, they were included. The box activities are supplemented with their Beyond…in a Box web portal where your children will find videos, interactives and additional activities. My kids (10, 8, and 7) have been enjoying these kits for years now. Two thumbs up and lots of smiles!" -Caitlin Fitzpatrick Curley
