Our mission is to provide a monthly subscription box designed to grow a child’s creative and critical thinking skills through engaging, hands-on learning. Through the IncubatorEDU program, which is a two-year entrepreneurial program at Vandegrift High School, Bamboo Boxes, LLC was created by a team of 4 students. After a long process of ideation and market testing of other ideas, the team found an idea that fits their goal: helping others.
