Free subscription box... kids pick activities, a-la-carte, each week for subjects (with non-computer options & req'd age-based schedules).
Tell us about your idea
I imagine that an edu-based subscription box would provide families of all income levels with an opportunity to inspire kids and enhance their learning. This free service would include both computer-enabled and non-tech options for ALL subject matters to ensure no families are left behind.
Each week, kids will be asked to select from a list of activities divided by subject (either online or via a slip that can be mailed in). This option encourages them to take an active role in their own learning.
Activities would be grade specific, offered at varying levels of difficulty to challenge students at their learning level.
The box would also include instructions to submit activities to the child's teacher, and recommended age-appropriate schedules. It could also include weekly tips (perhaps a one-pager to parents for each child's grade) on innovative/fun ways to incorporate learning into their child's week, based on appropriate subject matters, using things around the house/community.
To build a sense of community, boxes could also include community-based challenges (perhaps separated into towns/regions/school districts) to help kids connect with their peers.
I also imagine promotional opportunities with other services, like food delivery boxes... perhaps one of the math activities for the week is reimagined as a cooking lesson (measuring, fractions) and the box includes the necessary ingredients to actually bake cookies!
