Strawbees STEM Kit


Ages 6 and older

Using Strawbees with cadets and students will inspire the next generation of engineers. Design and build structures with the contents of this kit to enhance problem-solving skills. Cadets and students can dream, create, learn, and repeat using the non-consumable parts of the Strawbees kit.

This kit comes with over 300 pieces, including connectors and straws. Lesson plans and activities can be found online. This kit is perfect for young architects and engineers to design bridges, buildings, and structures of the future.

Aviation Connection: Using the included materials, youth will develop innovative bridges and structures that can connect airplanes to terminals allowing passengers to deplane quickly from the aircraft. Students will use scientific and mathematical formulas, engineering principles and unique designs that can structurally hold weight and withstand natural elements on Earth as well as other planets and even the Moon!

Approved applicants can expect to receive one or two Strawbees STEM Kits.
