'GoBox' is a robot building subscription service that encourages children to learn about robotics. While there are a number of educational toys that help children build their own robot, its is easy for kids to lose interest. This unique service aims to make robotics more fun and engaging by providing children with a new project each month.

Similar to other subscription services, GoBox works by providing monthly deliveries directly to the consumer. The first box contains the robot itself while each subsequent box contains a new part or sensor. Each box comes with instructions to guide the child through the process of integrating the new part. The ongoing projects are designed to keep children engaged and help them learn new skills over time.

By providing children with recurring projects, GoBox turns the initial task of robot building into an ongoing lesson in robotics.
