We received a sample of Strawbees to include in our Stem Kit round up. This is the first of many STEM Kit reviews you will read here on MomStart.
Kids want to create huge things. With the School kit, a lot of kids can build huge at the same time. It also includes epic lesson plans, and you can also download even more teacher created lessons here at education. Strawbees.com. They also have some cool maker activities including LittleBits, LEGO Mindstorms, MicroBit and Makey Makey! The kit includes 2560 Strawbees, 1500 Straws (in six wonderful colors), and a Card Deck of Creativity to be used when there is a need for a fantasy boost. Perfect for schools, maker spaces and science centers.
My kids LOVE Strawbees. Zoe and Miles are 10 and 11 years old and they spent an entire day making things out of the Strawbees kit. They created a dodecahedron and some catapults. Then my son combined a few of his creations and made an amazing spaceship. I LOVE seeing their creativity come alive in this STEM kit.
