Learn how to build engineering projects and program electronics with instructions and components sent to your door each month.

Get a new a more challenging project each month with new lessons.

What people are saying

Great for beginners who want to get into making and programming, but do not know where to start. This provides a solid foundation for them to build on, and will encourage them to build bigger and better things in the future. Brilliant product!

- Nicholas

I ordered this mainly for the purpose of tinkering and expanding my computer engineering knowledge thru independent projects, and even for me, this bundle ended up being incredibly handy and interesting!

- Roman

I subscribed to creation crate for my 6th grade Science class and it did not disappoint! Several of my students loved the fact that they were going to get more hands on experience with coding. It was an awesome sight seeing student's manipulate coding on the mood lamp to alter different settings. Can't wait for the 2nd box!!!

Our Curriculum

(for Creation Crate Electronics)

Mood Lamp
(Month 1)

This project will show you how to build a lamp that changes colors and only turns on when it is dark.
(We’re still not quite sure if the lamp controls your mood or the other way around.)

1.1. Arduino IDE Setup
1.2. Intro to Prototyping with a Breadboard (Fresh and Gluten Free)
1.3. My First Sketch (No Pencil Necessary)
1.4. Sine Waves and Algorithms, the sky’s the limit!

Memory Game
(Month 2)

This project will help you build a fun game that challenges your memory recall
of randomly-generated sequences of multi-colored LEDs.

2.1. Using Multiple Inputs and Outputs (I/O, I/O, it’s off to code I go.)
2.2. Randomizing Outputs
2.3. Using Arrays
2.4. Generating Sounds – Frequency Manipulation

Distance Detector
(Month 3)

This project will help you use an ultrasonic sensor to detect the distance of an object.
(Yes, you too can be Batman (or Batwoman)!)

3.1. Detecting Variable Input Values
3.2. Using the Serial Monitor (Has nothing to do with breakfast food)
3.3. Inferring Hardware Configuration by Analyzing the Code

LED Dice Game
(Month 4)

This project will simulate the random roll of a die. (Not to be used for gambling in back allies.)

4.1. Level 2 Wiring
4.2. Coding Challenge
4.3. Using IF/ ELSE

Optical Theremin
(Month 5)

“Throw your hands in the air and wave ‘em like you just don’t care!”
By simply waving your hand over the sensors you will learn how to create music.

5.1. Using a Potentiometer
5.2. Using a Light Dependent Resistor
(aka Photoresistor, not someone who hates getting their picture taken)

2-Player Reflex Game
(Month 6)

The modern equivalent of a gunslinger duel. This game will see who among your friends
has the fastest reflexes and survives to live another day. (Not officially endorsed by Duran Duran.)

6.1. Downloading Code
6.2. Using a Floating Pin (Not a bowling pin)
6.3. Using Pulldown and Pullup Resistors
6.4. Level 2 Functions6.5. Using Numbers & Variables in Functions

Weather Station
(Month 7)

This project will show you how to make a device capable of measuring temperature, humidity,
and atmospheric pressure and then calculating the heat index and altitude

7.1. Using Specialty Sensors/ Circuits
7.2. #Using #Libraries (#aka. #Code #Repositories)
7.3. Interpreting Inputs to Calculate Related Values

Audio Visualizer
(Month 8)

This project will help you create a display that will represent the volume level of your music.
(Play that funky music, DJ!)

8.1. Controlling an Array of LEDs
8.2. Smart LEDs (aka Neopixels)
8.3. Using the Interrupt Command

Lock Box
(Month 9)

This project will show you how to make an alarm that will sound if your lockbox is open without first entering the correct code.

9.1. Adding an LCD Screen
9.2. Using Boolean Values (Zero Shades of Gray.)
9.3. Using a Matrix Keypad
9.4. Level 2 Resistor Values

Digital Multimeter
(Month 10)

Want to know how much life is left in that battery? How about whether or not your wires are connected properly?

10.1. Ohm’s Law (Voltages, and Resistance, and Currents, oh my!)
10.2. Voltage Divider Circuits (Something you just can’t resist.)

Handheld Balance Game
(Month 11)

Do you have nerves like steel or will a light breeze knock you down?
The project you build this month will give you the answer. (Steady as she goes and full steam ahead!)

11.1. Using and Accelerometer
11.2. Coordinates and X / Y axes (No, were not chopping down trees)
11.3. Using the “Get” Command
11.4. Advanced: Change variables to increase difficulty.

Strength Gauge
(Month 12)

Are you more like Vin Diesel or Vin Weasel? This project will have you guessing no longer.

12.1. Using a Strain Gauge
12.2. Using an Amplifier Circuit
12.3. Using a Servo Motor
Advanced: Keep track of the high score.
