Top 5 Science & Engineering Projects for 2014

January 6, 2014 8:00 am Published by .

Thank you for supporting Xplore BoX during 2013! We have enjoyed receiving feedback and seeing the positive impact hands-on science had on children.

We are excited for the science & engineering projects coming up in 2014. Take a look our top 5!


We backed Kano on Kickstarter and are excited to receive our DIY (Do-It-Yourself) computer. The kit brings everything to make your own computer: a programmable board, which serves as the brain, a case, and a speaker. The possibilities are endless since you can code your own computer programs. We can’t wait to receive it and share our review with you!



The Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) blew us away with their video of the ATLAS robot. Take a peek below.

We can’t wait to see the improvements done on ATLAS or what new robot will be coming from their research and development team.



ROSETTA is the European Space Agency’s (ESA) spacecraft with a mission to comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. It was launched in 2004, and since then has been hibernating. It is now time for Rosetta to wake up, rendezvous with the comet, and put its lander on the surface. Join us in waking up Rosetta on January 20th!  Watch the great introduction video here.


Mars Desert Research Station

Mars Desert Research Station

Here at Xplore BoX we love hands-on science and the Mars Desert Research Station does just that. Join us as we follow Crew 133 on Mars (aka the Utah desert) as they conduct research helpful to future manned missions to Mars. A brief overview of the science they will perform is here.


Xplore BoX and YOU!

Xplore BoX Solar Energy theme science for kids

Are you ready?! We want to hear from you and see the Xplore BoX contents in action! Did you create your own experiment using the contents of Xplore BoX? Share your photos of the experiments and projects. We are excited to see YOU performing experiments and creating hands-on science projects!
