|Strawbees in action (from Strawbee's kickstarter page)|
We recently purchased a new die for our machine to make Strawbees, which will allow us to create the stuff in this video . As you can see, it is really cool and could be used with all ages including adults. We could host “maker” programs, or teachers or parents could collect their own plastic and straws, die cut them, and make their own stuff. This is the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) movement and so exciting!
