Emphasising play and curiosity, as well as learning by making, the straw construction kit fosters creativity and promotes original thinking. For example, tasking learners with not just building a bridge, but building their bridge, will allow them to experiment and learn by trying, modifying and trying again to create their engineering masterpiece. After all, the best way to learn is by testing out ideas and building prototypes. There’s no right or wrong way. The journey of exploration is what’s important.
