This crate was perfect for exploring science concepts in a fun and open ended manner. My boys loved the different experiments provided, as well as the different suggestions with household items. Three days later and the boys are still looking for different materials to put in their vacuum chamber!

My son was a ble to complete this project all on his own. It worked well and survived a lot of different experiments. My son had the most fun with the balloon, trying to see if we could get it to pop! He was also fascinated with the bell and the barometer. Great engineering and product quality, and a great crate with lots of opportunitites for investigation.

Air pressure is a science concept that we wouldn't have explored otherwise, so this crate was very unique and educational. It was a high quality product that made demonstrating some cool aspects of air pressure economical. It was super fun to make the vacuum chamber, and then experimenting with a variety of different objects was very entertaining.
