Haven’t got a box? Book one now!
What can you make with this box?
You can make something truly creative with this box. If you like the Bat mobile, or, if you think you need a moving robot that sweeps your home, or, whether you want to make a car that also turns into a boat, you can make whatever you want. Explore your imagination, and bring it to life by inventing your own vehicle!
What's inside the box?
What’s in the box is the beginning of your journey towards creative confidence!
In this journey, we will try many new things together. Some may work on the first try, some may not. Stick with it till it works!
As I like to say, “Tough is where the fun is” Let’s begin!
Module 1: Try it!
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. “
– Mark Twain
So let’s get started! Watch the video and find out if wheels need to be round to roll!
We made wheels of different shapes, mounted them on axles and rolled them down slopes. We observed the speed at which they rolled, and made our conclusions as to why. Share your conclusion with us!
Module 2: Learn it!
“For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.” ― Aristotle
Let’s look at the workbook and complete the challenges on it.
We found out that the slope affects speed of vehicles, and we understood the different parts of a vehicle. Now it’s time to make one!
Module 3: Make it!
Make a pull-back toy car with this kit. Watch this video to get the materials ready, and follow the instructions to make it. Do be afraid to try something new, and make it your own!

When you make one project, usually ideas start flying! Take a note of these ideas in a notebook, and be ready to innovate your designs!
Here are some questions you can try to answer.
– How will you make this project better?
– If you could do it again, how would you do it differently?
Module 4: Innovate it!
Here you will invent your own vehicle! You will design 3 different ideas for a vehicle that doesn’t exist yet, and draw your designs on paper. Then you will pick the best design, or a combination of your designs, and make a final one. You can record this final design in your workbook.
When you’re done designing, you can start building it! Watch some tricks on attaching cardboard to cardboard that helps you be truly innovative!
Can you think of something totally new to try out? If so, how would you go about it?
How about adding headlights (from the circuits in the previous box) to the vehicle you made?
