Benefits of Program

Every student has their own natural strengths and talents. Strawbees can help draw these out. Their hands-on system makes STEAM accessible for beginners - advanced learners and promotes learning at their developmental pace. With no rules, no restrictions, or wrong turns, kids can get started immediately, enjoy themselves, and explore deeper levels of understanding with each project.  Strawbees merge the physical with the digital. This kit will introduce students to their potential. 

Strawbees fit any teaching style, objective, and budget like a glove. 

Success of Program

Learning by doing isn’t good enough. Learning by trying is the future. Strawbees believes in developing students’ creative confidence and love of technology so they can make sense of the world and solve new problems. Knowing how to build, explore, test, and experiment are vital because breakthroughs don’t come gift-wrapped.  This program has measured successes.  It is a program that includes every type of learner, giving each student a chance to utilize their own special talents.


Students will have the opportunity to build a large cityscape, a large rollercoaster track for a ball to run through, a large pyramid structure taller than most students, and create moving mechanical arms and claws.
