FAQ

Beakerz Science Subscription

Q. How do I subscribe?

A.   You can purchase one box at a time, or save by subscribing month-to-month, or even more by pre-paying for a six or twelve month subscription. 

Q. What if I have multiple children? Do we need to buy multiple boxes?

A.   No! We know what it's like to be a sibling, and to have more than one student at home :) So we offer sibling sets, which consist of extra supplies at a much lower cost. These are also available in month-to-month or pre-paid subscriptions. We want everyone to participate!

Q. What is included in the monthly subscription?

A.   Each month, our Beakerz Sciences boxes ship with everything needed for the experiments/activities that go along with our science lessons. These video lessons, taught by Professor Beakerz, are accessed through our virtual classroom on Moodle - an education platform. You will be emailed with login information for Moodle prior to your box arriving. On Moodle, you will find the video lessons, notes for parents, and fun quizzes on the lessons. 

Q. Can my children do this alone?

A.   NO. Children must be supervised, as our boxes come with materials that need to be handled and overseen by an adult. They will need assistance and supervision as they do their experiments and activities. Parents, you can follow along with the videos as well as the lesson plans available to you in the virtual classroom. The lesson plans highlight key terms and concepts for you to focus on with your children throughout.
