Pre-packaged Inspiration in a box!
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) is a great way to inspire kids to want to learn and also to open their minds to see how really cool the world can be, but…
Add Art into the mix to turn STEM into STEAM and things get really interesting! STEM is technical skills that everyone can benefit from honing, but combining those skills with Art teaches kids how to apply those skills in eloquent and innovative ways.
Our STEAM Box Activities are designed specifically to lead children down a path of self-discovery, where through various small steps, they discover on their own that the marriage between STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and Art creates beautiful and amazing offspring.
Choose from the dozens of activity boxes that we’ve already designed, or we’d also be happy to design a brand new custom activity just for your school. There’s a STEAM Box for every occasion or budget, from Holiday themes that are heavy on Art to in-depth Science with REAL fossils included or Engineering inspired by Leonardo da Vinci.

We have designed STEAM Boxes especially for schools. Made by teachers, for teachers, so they’re ready to use literally right out of the box. We provide training materials for the teachers that include step by step instructions, samples of the finished products, and even onsite training if needed (Shanghai, Jiangsu & Zhejiang).
STEAM Box activities begin with students each receiving individual boxes containing all the materials needed to create their project and leads them through familiar, but cool, crafts similar to what they would have experienced in an other classes – However, there’s always a twist….
As the activity progresses, the projects that they’ve created along the way get combined in creative an unexpected ways. The activities are specifically designed to let the students discover, on their own, that the marriage of STEM with Art creates magical results.
This opens students’ minds to a different way of thinking and better rounds out their education…
Becoming technical through STEM is a valuable skill set for children to have and leads to all kinds of different professions when they grow-up, such as engineers and scientists – and could even lead to revolutionary breakthroughs that benefit all of mankind.
Becoming creative and artistic through the study of the arts is also valuable for children – they could grow up to become famous artists, musicians, or even help progress society’s culture in the future through philosophy.
Since the industrial revolution, the debate has raged on which is the more beneficial path, for both the child and for society. But it doesn’t have to be that way…
The most beneficial for everyone involved and to have the best of both worlds. By adding Art to STEM, you create STEAM and by combining them children end up seeing the world completely differently. They learn how to apply their STEM skills in beautiful and eloquent ways, to create technology that is harmonious with nature – truly revolutionary products, the likes of which the world has never even dreamed of.
Children were not born of our time… as educators, either as parents or as teachers, we are not at all qualified to predict every challenge children will face when they become our age – and thus… we cannot pre-program them with every answer they will need. Our job, our only job, is to open their minds to the possibilities, to encourage them and provide a safe environment for them to be curious – to think on their own, and to provide them with the best tools and confidence (that we can) to prepare them to face the unknown.
We don’t want to prepare children to face a cruel and unforgiving world, we want to give them the weapons that they’ll need to make the world a little less cruel and a little more forgiving!
Just like all of our kid-safe products, our STEAM Boxes are available within mainland China, or can also be exported worldwide.
