the Crate Challenge

From the desk of the product designer:

Behind the design

I was inspired by the workers who tackle real-life oil spills with science and engineering, and I wanted to help kids connect with those problem solvers through a series of fun experiments! - Jody, KiwiCo product designer

By the numbers

Wood animals rescued: 25

Amount of oil that was cleaned during testing: 1000 ML

Ways your boom can be created: any way you want!

Great little kit :) I like that this can be used again and again with simple household ingredients

What a GREAT teaching. My 3 year old grandson was washing the little animal after the oil compromised his little body! Kiwi company is WONDERFUL at every level. Customer service like no other! Crates are amazing! I send 5 a month to grandchildren from 1-11

Luckily I bought two. My 4 yr old grandchild loved the oiling and washing of animals and mixing color, but this interfered with her 9 yr old brother's desire to follow the experiments. As a former Env. Sci. major and teacher, I loved everything about the activity.
