Creation Crates for Your Makerspace GIVEAWAY

Friday, August 19, 2016

Are you looking to expand your Makerspace, spice up computer programming time or just simply want to engage your students in some critical thinking and problem solving? If so, I encourage you to check out Creation Crate.

Creation Crates. Learn the ins and outs of computer programming while engaging in critical thinking and problem solving.

Creation Crate sent me their Mood Lamp kit last week and I had a blast assembling and programming this unit to light up blue, red and greenish/yellow. I was able to program the lights to blink, control the brightness and manipulate how much darkness was needed before the lamp would light up. Kids would have an absolute blast with this kit.

Program Creation Crate's Mood Lamp to light up in different colors and blink.

I have to say, the instructions and problem shooting guide made this kit really stand out. Even though the entire code is provided for the students to enter, there are three questions included that encourage students to explore and experiment with changing their code. That aspect of this kit really appealed to me. 

Age Recommendations:

The site recommends ages 12+ but I truly think kids in 3rd and 4th grade could benefit from these exploration kits, especially if you team them up or put them into small groups! If you have a child younger than that but is mesmerized my programming, have them work with an adult or older mentor.

Ordering Boxes:

You can order just one box ($29.99) OR to get the most bang for your buck, buy a subscription for 3 months, 6 months or 12 months and they send you a different kit each month. How fun would that be to receive a new kit and swap out your Makerspace station or just build it up?!

If you are interested in trying out a Creation Crate then here is a special deal just for YOU:
