    Kids loved it

    Brought 2, and kids liked both projects. The lantern was simpler for my 4 yr old to do with little direction. The other one she had help from her 8 yr old brother. They really were happy with the result of their creations. I like the informational magazine.

    Fun, engaging, and educational

    This crate was an excellent combination of engineering and the wonder of science! The instructions were clear and broken down so my son could easily build the orbiting system on his own. He loved making his own constellations, and still uses the lantern in his room as a night light!

    Visual explanation of science concepts

    Excellent, age appropriate explanations of how the moon travels in relationship to the sun. Great learning experience for my daughter to physically see the earth an moon rotating, and moving the gears herself to create the orbits.

    Learning about orbits

    My son really enjoyed controlling the sun and exploring how the moon moves around the Earth. He also loved making his own constellations with the stickers for the lantern. Having everything light up just added to the excitement!
