Elevate Science for Grades 6-8:
Hands-on Equipment Kits

Equip your classroom for exciting inquiry through STEM inventions, hands-on explorations, or innovative “makerspaces.” Elevate Science equipment kits engage all learners in observing, explaining, reasoning, and thinking about phenomena. Find the materials you need for Elevate Science labs and engineering design challenges. See our NEW uEngineer It! Maker Crates and littleBit STEM Invention Kits that can be used in any science classroom to support the practices of the Next Generation Science Standards.* elevate learning—elevate results



Focus on inquiry skills, scientific practices, and the engineering design process.


uEngineer It! Maker Crates

Create your own makerspace! Let students channel their “inventor” skills with materials that support new Engineering Design Standards. The kit spans grade levels 6-8 and includes plenty of reusable materials for ongoing innovation, iteration, and design improvement. Tips are provided for starting your own makerspace, creating design challenges, and working in small-groups.


littleBits STEM Invention Toolboxes

Make interactive devices, build programmable contraptions, and create inventions! littleBits STEM Invention Kits contain programmable electronic modules from our partner littleBits. Easy-to-use, color-coded electronic “Bits” snap together to create an endless array of inventions. Let students explore the design process through the eye of a technology engineer. Individual grade level kits for Grades 6-8.
