ABOUT STRAWBEES

Strawbees is a construction set for you to build things that can stand, move, spin, glide, or even walk across the floor.

Strawbees is as a material for people to express, test and share their ideas, developing the necessary skills to think creatively.

The 4 color-coded connectors have r 1, 2, 3 and 5 legs. You can fit straws on their legs, slide a straw through the hole or click a leg on a hole. Strawbees kits include color-coded straws that are carefully measured and resistant enough to endure daily use.

No additional parts are required. You can build structures, mechanical contraptions, and robotic mechanisms all with 4 connectors. Custom parts can be provided to make it easier to use but you can build a model of anything with those 4 Strawbees connectors.

This is also true for a lot of other construction toys but what puts Strawbees apart is the ability to build the same thing in different scales, navigating through 3 orders of magnitude: You can build small things that measure a few centimetres and fit in your pocket, small objects that can be easily manipulated, larger object that you can wear and gigantic structures that can fit a group of students inside.

With just a handful of Strawbees connectors and a few straws or cardboard, there is plenty that can be built, from simple shapes to compound mechanisms.

KEY FEATURES

  • Play = Learning – extend learning at home for young makers and build creative thinking skills to invent anything you can imagine.
  • Self-Oriented Learning – an introduction for teachers, librarians, and STEM educators to follow along on Strawbees Learning platform and professional development experiences.
  • Different lengths & color-coded pieces – there are 4 types of connectors and 5 different cut straw lengths cut all color-coded making it easy to follow the activity instructions.
  • All materials are custom-made, durable, and reusable – finish building, disassemble, and begin a new project.

OVERVIEW

The STEAM Starter kit is a personal sized building set with 230 pieces to build several small towers, moving mechanical cranes and arms. The building set comes with 5 different precut straw sizes and 4 color-coded connectors organized in the box.

For at home: everything needed to start inventing out of the box to engage learning at home.

For educators: use as a way to build anything from the Strawbees Learning platform or use as a personal kit in a professional training environment.

With STEAM Starter Kit you can perform a whole variety of activities, such us:  

  • Platonic solids - building shapes that have intrigued philosophers, mathematicians and scientists for centuries (more here)
  • Construct a modular, fractal structure with tetrahedral shapes (more here)
  • Build an operational crane with a four-bar linkage and control it with your hands (more here).
