Subscriptions services have enjoyed a bit of a boost in recent months, and the trend has extended to science experiments. One such service is Agent Ribbit, the brainchild of Courtney Sperlazza, a medical researcher who is homeschooling her kids (H/T STEM Connector). Dissatisfied with the science materials she was able to find, she decided to create her own. The experiments are designed for children ages 5-9, and there are add-on activities for children 3 and under.
If you sign up for Agent Ribbit, you can customize your subscription for the size of your group, and choose 1, 3, 6 and 12 month lengths. The company is just starting its shipments with a box on epidemiology, so I’d encourage you to be patient. It’s also worth noting that these kits aren’t limited to classrooms and home-schooling scenarios. Any parent or older sibling interested in doing something with a younger child could benefit from the boxes.
(If there are similar services out there, especially for other age groups, I’d love to hear about them.)
