Here at FasTracKids, we’re always on the lookout for better and more diverse opportunities for parents to increase their kids’ exposure to educational experiences – especially when it comes to STE(A)M. We also believe that learning should be fun. For these reasons, we’re excited to share our new partnership with Groovy Lab in a Box. Groovy Lab in a Box is full of everything a child needs to learn about and do hands-on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) experiments. This award-winning company uses the mail-order model (subscription or a la carte) to deliver supplemental STEM education.
Effortless STE(A)M Enrichment at Home
For parents, it’s incredible because the service facilitates home learning — and makes it actually happen. Each box includes every single thing kids need to carry out the kind of experiment that occurs in a researcher’s lab. With the subscription, it arrives at your door every month like clockwork. That means zero trips to the store for you, no pressure to come up with exciting, age-appropriate STEM projects, and no rallying the kids. Whenever their new Groovy Lab in a Box arrives, they’ll provide the excitement!
Why do kids need supplemental STE(A)M Education?
- To develop a love of learning
- To get an edge in school
- To discover their passions through real-life experiences
- To learn how to cope with and leverage failure
- To learn how to solve real-world problems
- To build a foundation of skills that will be required by the jobs of the future
To benefit from this partnership, your child needn’t be enrolled in a FasTracKids New York enrichment program. In our online store, you’ll find coupon codes for 20% off the first month of a subscription or 50% off a single box.
Get Ahead & Prevent the Summer Slide
We love Groovy Lab in a Box because it’s an affordable way to give kids hands-on STEM experiences and develop scientific thinking. Each box activates thinking, questioning, inquiring, and problem-solving by guiding children through the scientific inquiry and engineering design process. The projects are designed for ages eight and above, but with a bit more parental support, they’re equally appealing to younger kids. Groovy Lab is enrichment at its best, keeping kids engaged in STE(A)M education after school, on the weekends, and throughout the summer.
The Social Factor: An Active Online Community
Though Groovy Lab might make all the kids in the neighborhood gravitate to your house, not everyone has other kids around with whom to complete STEM projects. Even if your child does the experiments solo, he or she can share the experience with other kids around the country on social media. If your child is too young to use social networks, or you want to guide the online conversation, you can send photos or video of your un-boxings, science discoveries, and design challenges to share@AcademicsInABox.com.
About Groovy Lab
Groovy Lab is the result of a collaboration between scientists, parents, educators, and business owners determined to provide children with more accessibility to STEM-related education and physical hands on experiments. They want every child to utilize their STEM potential to the fullest, so they created a way for any kid to complete a monthly project using the Engineering Design Process. The resulting Boxes have been recognized by Parents Pick Awards as one of The Top 10 Subscription Boxes for Kids, The Parent’s Choice Awards, and Popular Mechanics, just to name a few!
Groovy Lab in a Box is the easy way to keep educational activities fresh for your child and convenient for you. Just visit our store to bring the world of STEM education into your home!
