Tinker Crate develops kids' natural creativity and curiosity using STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) principles. KiwiCo's mission is to help kids use STEM as a key to creative problem solving, a foundation for critical thinking, and a pipeline to innovation.

Tinker Crate encourages hands-on learning for kids between the ages of 9 to 14. With activities designed to help kids discover, explore, and create things in the world around them, Tinker Crate brings hands-on fun right to your door.

1. Pick a line. Many projects are offered for every age and interest!
2. Delivered monthly. Choose your plan and the first crate ships in 2 days. Pause or cancel anytime.
3. Serious fun! The science and engineering projects inspire kids to become creative problem solvers.

Use these crates as a tool, not only for your child's learning, but also as an activity to spend time together. Who knows, you may learn something too! Set enough time aside to be able to fully engage in the activity. If you are mechanically inclined, be sure to hold yourself back. Do not take over this activity! If help is asked for, help. But ensure your child first puts in the effort and takes the lead.
