How STEM Discovery Boxes got started:
My name is Carrie and I am the mom of 5. I have three teenage sons and twins born in 2021. While raising my 3 active, curious boys they were eager to get their hands on everything so that they can learn how it worked and why it did what it did.
As a Cub Scout leader I was always coming up with fun, creative activities to keep 13 rowdy boys excited and interested in learning - which is not always easy to do.
I started STEM Discovery Boxes after realizing how much work it was to research projects, purchase all the separate materials from multiple locations, cut individual pieces, ration out items into individual packs for each Cub Scout, create the instructions, have my guinea pigs (I mean, sons and Scouts) test the ease of creating the projects and then wait and see how well they worked. I also noticed how expensive making the kits would be for an individual to purchase everything to make only a few kits for their own kids. After doing this many times I realized how much I wish I could just buy everything ready to go. I looked online and many of the kits available were too run-of-the-mill for my curious boys or often times required tons of "unsupplied" materials. By time we hunted and gathered everything we needed, the kids lost interest. Creating projects that were fun, educational and convenient is the idea behind STEM Discovery Boxes! Everything is included and arrives right at your door ready to go. After many years, thousands of hours of research and testing, STEM Discovery Boxes is now an award-winning, highly praised educational subscription box.
