“The kit encourages experimentation, observation, reflection and note-taking. Each experiment encourages the young scientist to change something in his/her study, and perform it again, but the child is the one who gets to decide how to change it. By design, every child who plays with this will find different outcomes, because they’ll do different experiments.”

Popular Mechanics“We’ve partnered with the makers of Groovy Lab in a Box, a fantastic educational company that mails shoe-box-size educational kits to kids, teaching them about science, technology, mathematics, and engineering. Sign up, and they’ll send out a new box every month with a different theme.”

“Ford launched fordsteamexperience.com as a way to showcase many of the education-focused programs it offers. The company’s newest one is a collaboration with Academics in a Box, designers of Groovy Lab in a Box, an award-winning educational kit line designed for children ages 8 and up interested in learning STEAM fields. The unique experience is delivered right to their homes at no cost when they sign up.

The Ford STEAM Box challenges youth to think like a Ford engineer. The box includes a number of activities – designing a vehicle frame out of origami and kirigami modeling, working with copper tape which conducts electricity to create a working motor, and creating headlights and taillights using LED lighting – all adding up to a complete prototype of a Ford Mustang GT model.”

“We found the box early in our homeschool journey and fell in love with it. It’s so well done. It’s a female owned company which I just love…..They include everything. I tell this story, one of the first boxes we got was about the weather. You were creating your own weather station. As part of it you needed a human hair and a dime and both of them were in the box. Literally everything….They are so green that they will incorporate the box itself into the experiments you are doing. I remember one time we made a guitar out of the box. Groovy Lab in a Box is presented in partnership with Popular Mechanics and is packaged by adults with disabilities.”


“Groovy Lab in a Box is a subscription based STEM exploration project. This is not a “science kit” in the sense that it does not give you an experiment and step by step instructions for how to recreate a desired result. It gives kids ages 8 & up the knowledge, through entertaining videos and a helpful Lab Notebook, to come up with their OWN projects to figure out how to get the desired results….

The box contains everything you need to do the projects. Not, “some common household materials required” like most science programs. (I kid you not, the science book we hate asked us for hydrogen peroxide and LIVER recently. Who has liver laying around the house??) I love, love, love the fact that everything we need is all in the box. “

“The kit encourages experimentation, observation, reflection and note-taking. Each experiment encourages the young scientist to change something in his/her study, and perform it again, but the child is the one who gets to decide how to change it. By design, every child who plays with this will find different outcomes, because they’ll do different experiments.”


“From experimenting with air-powered rockets to building circuits, their monthly box guides children through the engineering design process and scientific inquiry. Similar to DI, kids will investigate, brainstorm, plan, build, test, and redesign.”

“I love that this box isn’t a “recipe” box where every step is planned out perfectly and provided. Instead Groovy Lab in a Box encourages kids to think “outside the box” (pun intended) and come up with their own conclusions and ways to work through the projects.”

“He was hooked!! He asked me numerous times, “So, one of these boxes will come EVERY month with NEW stuff???” I’m excited, too! I was really impressed with the activities and materials included. ”
