The kit uses easy to cut paper drinking straws as sticks. Great for testing ideas, or just a fun toy for a budding engineer.
1. Cut your straws to length
2. Push connectors into straws
3. Start connecting!
Comes with 50 straws – enough to make a 45cm (18″) diameter dome with plenty of extras to experiment with. You also get 4 extra 6-way hubs to help with adaptation ideas.
Need more straws? The kit can be used with most standard (6mm) paper drinking straws, although we recommend buying a small number first to test the fit.
We recommend the kit for age 6+.
There is a choking hazard due to small parts, so it’s definitely not for children age 3 or under.
