    Projector science

    This crate was a great introduction to show the basics of projection. My son loves Disneyland, so this was a great tool to help him understand how the imagineers at Disney created the ballroom scene at the Haunted mansion. We loved all the different components and the variety of things that could be done with the finished product!

    Challenging and rewarding experience

    The end result was worth the effort! Super rewarding after a challenging build. It shows the basics of projection with fun different illusions and "magic tricks". There was a lot of potential for exploration after the projector wa built.

    Unique and fun

    Such a fun concept with interesting science behind it. My son liked learning about how everything worked and putting on a variety of shows with the different backgrounds provided.
