Here’s What Happens When You Give Kids a Pile of Cardboard and a STEM Cart

Cardboard is the unsung hero of STEM education.

It’s cheap to get, easy to work with, and your imagination really is the limit of what you can make with it. With so many different ways to use cardboard in the classroom, we set out to challenge four educators to see what their students would create.

We sent them this FabricationStation Deluxe Makerspace Kit, which comes with cardboard, scissors, storage caddies, markers, a paper roll, and more. Plus everything fit on a wheeled cart that teachers and students can easily move. Then we told them to create!

Yep, there were no set rules or instructions. We wanted students to dream up something great and then make it. We had no idea what to expect, but we are WOWED by the results. Here’s a look at the four teachers who took on the challenge with their students.
