    My 13-year old son loves Creation Crate! He has a PS4, yet when the kit arrives, he jumps off those games and starts working on the new project.

    Creation crate is an incredible learning tool. I'm a 29 year old engineering student and I am learning a ton from this program. I HIGHLY recommend this. My only complaint is that they don't have more projects. I would do hundreds of these if that had them.

    My son was so proud of himself for creating an electronic toy. He took it to school for show and tell! These crates are great for teaching your child the science of how things work. :-)

    • Essentially, if you want to learn electronics or C++ programming, Creation Crate is the tech subscription box for you.

    All of the electronic kits are going to be different depending on the project, but the 3 main things you will receive are:

    • An UNO R3 microcontroller, which is like a pocket-sized computer (and is also Arduino compatible)
    • Various electronic components
    • Access to online courses

    No experience necessary! You can start as a complete beginner and have no problem finishing (and understanding) the first project.

    All of Creation Crate’s projects use the Arduino language (C/C++).

    You'll gain hands-on learning experience with microcontrollers, breadboards, piezo buzzers, light emitting diodes (LED), ultrasonic sensors, accelerometers, 7-segment displays, LCD screens, microphone modules, temperature humidity sensors, LED matrices, photoresistors, buttons, and jumper wires.

    Inside the Online Classroom you'll find step-by-step instructions on how to assemble the hardware, video tutorials for components, and tutorials on how to program your project.

    You'll also get an overview of common errors, exercises to test your new knowledge, and a messaging board to help troubleshoot and answer any questions you have.

    Excellent Customer Service!

    I thought I had ordered one thing but I hit the wrong button. I contacted the company and they immediately got back to me and had given me a refund when it was totally my fault. I was so impressed by their service!

    Michael Lanier
    Awesome Learning Tool

    These guys have an awesome product

    These guys have an awesome product and amazing customer service as I happened to auto fill an old address for my shipping and couldn't retrieve my package after finding this out the people at Creation Crate told me not to worry and resent my kit to me no problem. Now thats taking care of a customer for sure.
    I excited for my next project and cant wait!

    Wow! Thank you so much for the kind words.

    Instructions in writing and video.

    The online courses were well done. In addition, there were written instructions. The two worked together and supplemented each other.
    If I was confused by the video, I could clarify using the booklet.

    We are glad to hear that our efforts to create an engaging multi-media experience that delivers for all learning types (auditory, visual, kinetic, etc.) is working for you.

    Lanier RN
    Good but hard to hear at times

    My son and I both learned something from it but the initial videos are very quiet for a phone or ipad. We had to connect an external speaker in order to be able to understand what he was saying for some of the videos.

    Thank you for the feedback. We will have the team review the videos and see if we can increase the volume. Please email and send us information about any specific videos that you are having trouble hearing.
