Ages 5-8 Kiwi
In addition to the 9 unique monthly Kiwi kits that you will receive, this course has an online component with additional activities.
Compared to other My Tech High Tech and Entrepreneurship courses, this course will be much more open and varied based on the random nature of kit themes. There will be flexibility in how students implement the kits.
If you’ve taken this course in the past or have had a previous KiwiCo subscription, you can still take this course.
Although the format of the course will remain similar year over year, students are invited to take the course again to continue practicing their innovation skills. You will not receive duplicate crates regardless of theme or past subscriptions, as KiwiCo tracks this information to assure students are having new learning experiences!
