Tinker Crate ships in an orange box.
Tinker Crate sends a little magazine every month, filled with information about this month's theme and various projects you can do. This month's theme is “Soda Science”.
This is a look at some of the topics and articles in the box.
The instructions unfold to reveal the included materials. The only thing you need for this month's box is water.
The instructions were broken down into four parts:
- Build Your Launcher
- Build Your Rocket
- Build Your Funnel
- Make the Launch Mixture.
The back of the paper gave tips to make your rocket launch well.
Build your launcher The first step was to build the launcher for the rocket. This was a pretty easy step, except for the stopper, that was a bit tricky.
The base was very sturdy, so your rocket can launch high in the air.
Build your rocket The actual rocket came together pretty quickly. My son only need help taping on the fins.
Adding the foam cone to the rocket.
Make the launch mixture There were two large packets of citric acid and baking soda. More than enough for several launches. The mixture consisted of two scoops of citric acid and two scoops of baking soda. To launch the rocket, add one scoop of mixture.
Setting Off The Rocket

Final Thought: My son really loved this box and I am glad I subscribed. He is young for the box, but he was able to do most of the project himself. Tinker Crate is a great box to teach STEM to kids.
