Use the FormBox in the classroom to help children create their own projects
Students learn the core curriculum by making their own things
"The FormBox is fast to set up and really easy to use. For children participating in my workshop it’s alwaysLuke Wiehink, Netherlands
magical to see their (sometimes rough) clay mold,
being formed into a (comical, beautiful, tough, etc) plastic gargoyle. Works every time!"
Make Complicated Ideas Tangible
When ideas from maths and science are applied to making - children engage with theory in a more direct way. This deepens their understanding and aids their retention and engagement.
Teach Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Children can use the FormBox to quickly create batches of professional products with almost no training. Once they start building their own businesses at school who knows where that will take them.
When students feel empowered to create their own things they realize their innate creative power. This builds confidence in themselves and their abilities.
Creating together is more powerful than working alone. Working on collaborative making projects helps children learn what it means to be a part of a team.
When children realise that they have the ability to make their ideas real they learn the invaluable skill of ‘sticking with it’.
